1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1. Peel, core, and chop the apples into small pieces.
2. Add water, sugar, and cinnamon.
3. Cook over medium heat for 20 minutes, or until apples are tender.
4. Cool for a few minutes and then mash with a potato masher.
Remember the time I told you I burned the applesauce to a crisp? Here's the proof. This is definitely not what you want to do.
This is how it should look. Golden and delicious.
As you can see, it makes quite a bit, but it freezes very well and also stays good in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks.
I love applesauce, especially with chunks of apples in it so I don't mash mine to pieces. If you want yours to be really mashed, you could also use a hand mixer.
