AN OLD FASHIONED RECIPE FOR COMFORT FOOD ~ APPLESAUCE, HOMEMADE, THE ONLY WAY

In today's world there are more conveinence foods than the average person can count.  Every can, jar, bottle, tube or frozen container is full of preservatives, additives or some form of chemical.  As most of you know I DO NOT do any of the above.  Our entire meals are made from scratch, a fact that according to my oncologist saved my life.  So it's no wonder I love simple, old recipes!  This picture does NOT do this recipe justice!

HOMEMADE APPLESAUCE
10 Honey Crisp apples, washed, peeled, cored and chopped
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
2 lemons, juiced
2 tablespoons butter
  • Combine all ingredients in a stock pot*.
  • Bring to a slow simmer.
  • Simmer 2 hours +/- stirring regularly.
  • Simmer until apples are translucent.
I like the applesauce warm, but it's great warm or cold!

*I like to use a large, but shirt stock pot so more of the applesauce touches the pan.

Love homemade applesauce! I make it every year when my neighbor brings me bags upon bags of apples off his trees from upstate NY when he comes to FL for the season.
