Wonder what I did with all those apples? I had enough to make three cups of applesauce and a small apple crisp. This applesauce recipe is very simple to make and only three ingredients are needed: apples, a little water and ground cinnamon. Use a variety of apples, at least three, for a complex sauce. I love Granny Smith, Golden Delicious and a red apple, such as Macon, MacIntosh or Honeycrisp.
Place the apples and 1/4 cup cold water in a covered pot and bring to a boil.
Lower to a gentle simmer and continue cooking until the apples easily crush when pushed against the side of the pan with a spoon.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and stir.
If you make the dish ahead, be sure to warm it on the stove top or in the microwave before serving.
