Homemade Applesauce

It’s a new year! Can you believe it?

What are some of your resolutions?
Mine are to fully enjoy life and everything it has to offer; live in the moment; and to improve my health & well being– including lots of yoga and meditation 🙂
In college I took a Buddhist Art History course in which for the first half hour of each lecture, all we did was meditate. (Awesome teacher, I know!) It’s amazing how much it improves the clarity of life. 
As far as improving my health goes… Well, being a baker isn’t exactly healthy- but hey, at least I’m enjoying life and food to the fullest

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.

Enjoy!

Homemade Apple Sauce
(makes 2 mason jars, 4-6 servings)
INGREDIENTS:
4 apples – peeled, cored and chopped
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup white sugar*
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


DIRECTIONS:
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
