Applesauce

 

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.
