Apples, apples, apples

Applesauce is so good and delicious, can I just say that.  I have been using it a lot lately for my muffins, see below; so I decided to make some of my own.  I bought some dollar bags of apples and went to town.

It was so easy too.  I didn't even peel the apples, I just sliced/cored them up and put them in a pot with a little bit of water.  Once they cooked for an hour or so I added some cinnamon and nutmeg to taste and cooked them a little bit longer.  Then I blended them up to make it smoother, and that is it.  Super easy.  I used 10 apples and look how much it made!  I used a variety of apples too, some sweet and some sour.  I am very excited to eat some.

  1. Wow, now you're reminding me of my grandmother! I suppose the movement to eat simply and naturally does take us back to the time of your great-grandparents or before. Did you go to the trouble of sterilizing the jars & lids & steaming them after filling? Or am I mixed up about what's necessary? I just made a green Jello salad for dinner club tonight; I called the hostess to ask for suggestions as to what salad she would suggest, and that's what she said to bring! Ugh; the color and smell made me ill while I was making it! But I grew up eating Jello salads often.
