Applesauce is something almost everyone enjoys – from babies to adults. Served warm or cold, it makes a great side, dessert or snack. What is even better about applesauce is it is super easy to make. In fact, it almost makes itself.
The next time you are hungry for apple sauce, take a look in your fridge before heading the store. If you find few apples in your produce drawer, they’ll work great if you have some free time and the desire to make your own pureed treat. And if they happen to be SweeTango apples, even better!
Here are some simple instructions for making your own.
First, peel and core a few apples.
Next, put the apples in a pan with a quarter to half cup of apple cider. Pepin Heights cider works great! Remember, the more cider you use, the runnier the apple sauce will be. Cover the pan and cook on the stovetop for 20 to 30 minutes on medium heat.
Remove the lid and turn the heat off. Using a potato masher or a mixer, mash the apples.
Add cinnamon and sugar to taste. Everyone likes different amounts, so this is your chance to make your apple sauce exactly the way you like it.
Chill in the fridge if you like your apple sauce cold, or dish it up and serve it warm if you prefer.
