It’s a new year! Can you believe it?
In an effort to make something “healthy” I stumbled across a delicious, chunky Apple Sauce recipe. It is delightful and has the perfect touch of sweetness and spice from the cinnamon.
(makes 2 mason jars, 4-6 servings)
4 apples – peeled, cored and chopped
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup white sugar*
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. In a saucepan, combine apples, water, sugar, and cinnamon.
2. Cover and cook over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until apples are soft.
3. Allow to cool, then transfer to blender and pulse until the applesauce becomes a thick sauce with small apple chunks.
4. Transfer to mason jars or other sealable containers. Applesauce will keep for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. Serve chilled or warm over vanilla ice cream-yum!
*Or use 1/4 cup Truvia/Stevia in replace of the sugar for an extra healthy treat
