Easy (and yummy) Homemade Applesauce by Laura Bradford

I love everything about fall. I love the changing colors, I love the cooler nights (great for sleeping), I love getting my boots out of the attic and trading in my flip-flops for a few months, and I love dusting off my cookbooks and making my home smell extra good via the kitchen.

If, like me, you’ve recently visited an apple orchard, here’s a super easy recipe for homemade (unsweetened) applesauce.

You need:

8 apples (I used a combination of red and golden delicious)—sliced…no need to peel!

½ cup of water

½ teaspoon cinnamon

On the stovetop, cook the sliced apples, water, and cinnamon in a covered pot on medium for 20 minutes (a little more if necessary to soften).

Transfer apples to a blender in batches. Blend to create your desired consistency of applesauce.

Let it come to room temperature and then store in a jar or other airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Or freeze.
