3 pounds of Apples (You can use any mixture of sweet apples: Cortland, Golden Delicious, Gala, McIntosh, etc.)
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 cup Water
Juice from ½ a Lemon
Toss the apples into a large saucepan
Add the sugar.
Add the cinnamon. This is one of the best parts of homemade apple sauce, because the kitchen just gets this great apple pie smell as the apples and cinnamon cook together. Yum!
I just love the rosy colour that you get from cooking it with the skins on.
This applesauce is great warm or chilled. I also like to use it in recipes as a substitute to oil when I am trying to make something lighter. I hope you enjoy this easy Fall treat!
