I LOVE HOMEMADE APPLESAUCE
Last week I attended and participated in a recipe exchange with some friends. The kids played while we ate and talked- my idea of a perfect mom party!
All the recipes were delish! I decided to share my Homemade Chunky Applesauce. This is the stuff I grew up on- puts store bought TO SHAME. It was always great to have it on the table because it tastes like dessert but mom let us have it for dinner! Score!
My mom and I canned A TON of applesauce and apple butter last year (see pics). But if you don't know how to can, or want to make a quick dish, here is the recipe I shared- the easy version. Enjoy! I promise it will be THE BEST applesauce you will ever eat .Period.
EASY GOURMET CHUNKY APPLESAUCE
From Litton's Meal in One Microwave Cookbook
Note: one medium apple equals about 1 cup cooked.
6 cups peeled, cored and sliced cooking apples (we like Golden Delicious)
1/2 cup water
1 TB lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1. Combine apples, water and lemon juice in 2 quart glass casserole dish
2. Microwave for 10-12 minutes, on High, or until apples are tender (about 200 degrees). Stir in remaining ingredients.
