An Apple a Day
Apples are a great fruit available in the winter months. One easy treat I make for my family is fresh applesauce. I use any apple at hand although McIntosh is one of my favorites. You just need apples, white sugar and cinnamon.
Basically I take four or five apples, peeled, cored and sliced (I use an apple wedger). Throw them into a pot with ¾ cup of water and ¼ cup of sugar and cook over a medium heat until soft (about 15 minutes or so). Then I mash with a potato masher – my family likes it smooth – and sprinkle with cinnamon to taste.
You might choose to use less sugar or other kinds of sugar, but I’m an old-fashioned girl and white sugar tastes best to me. And you might like it chunky so skip the masher. Either way, I think you and yours will find you like this kind of applesauce better than the prepared kind. And you can say it’s homemade and all-natural!
