Now that the venting is done, we did try some new recipes this weekend. It snowed here pretty good yesterday, so we didn’t venture out anywhere. I love Ree Drummond. I love her books, her show, her blog. Last Saturday on the show she made homemade applesauce. This Saturday, I’d thought I’d give it a try since the kids love applesauce. It’s one of the healthier things they actually eat.
6lbs Mixed apple varieties (peeled,sliced, cored) 1C Apple juice or water Juice of 1/2 lemon 1/2 C Light brown sugar 1tsp Cinnamon
Throw the apples, apple juice, and lemon juice into a pan and bring it to a boil over medium-high heat. Lower the heat and simmer until the apples are soft, about 15 minutes. Stir through the sugar and mix until melted. Add the cinnamon and stir through. Remove from heat and allow to cool for at least 5 minutes.
Puree the mixture in a food processor or blender. If not using right away, leave to cool and then refrigerate.
*If using a blender, release one corner of the lid; that prevents the vacuum effect that can create a heat explosion.
Final result: DELICIOUS!
