(WEEKEND DIY) HOMEMADE APPLESAUCE
It is apple season here in Pennsylvania! So grab some apples and make something delicious this weekend like this homemade applesauce!
When I said I got distracted by a box of apples last weekend I wasn't joking! I bought a box full of Jonathan apples for $10 at the flea market with dreams of making all things apple. I made multiple batches of applesauce and decided to share the SUPER EASY recipe with you. No special equipment is needed! Applesauce can be canned or frozen to last all winter!
Approximately 3-4 pounds of apples
1 cup water
1 Cinnamon Stick
1 Teaspoon Ground cinnamon
1 Tablespoon sugar
Step 1: Cut, core and peel 3-4 pounds of apples. Thicker slices take longer to cook.
Step 2: Combine apples, water and optional cinnamon, cinnamon stick and sugar. Simmer in stock pot over low heat with the lid on. Stir occasionally.
Step 3: Once the apples are soft then mash the apples. This can be done multiple different ways, with a potato masher, hand mixer or whatever thing I found at a yard sale above!
Step 4: EAT! Applesauce can be stored in glass jars in your fridge, canned and sealed to last on the shelf or in freezer containers for up to a year.
Please leave me a comment with the link if ever complete any of these Weekend DIY projects and I will link up with you!!!
