Let me start by saying my hubby is a little apple crazy?! He eats apples every day like they are going out of style! Well, he went a little overboard at the market last weekend and then accidentally left the apples in the car and they froze. :(
Anyone know what happens to frozen apples after they thaw???
So, it was either a pie or applesauce. Neither of us are sweets kinda people but our little guy loves applesauce!
A lot of our recipe variations start with stuff we find from Allrecipes.com - love that site - so that's where I went to find my applesauce recipe. The recipe that I went off of was Sarah's Applesauce Recipe. I did however halve the sugar because it was for little man so I didn't want him getting too much sugar. I'm glad I did cause it's still pretty sweet.
- 4 apples; peeled, cored, and chopped
- 3/4 cups water
- 1/4 cup white sugar (like I said, I halved this)
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
|Ingredients all ready to simmer!|
- In a saucepan, combine apples, water, sugar, and cinnamon. Cover, and cook over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until apples are soft. Allow to cool, then mash with a fork or potato masher.
- That's it! :)
No wine pairing obviously this week since it's for my little man but I hope you enjoy!
Till next time!~Vino Vixen~
