homemade applesauce

Hello Friends! 
I have been trying my darn hardest to stick to the healthy lifestyle, this weekend I may have had a few unhealthy foods but I don't feel guilty because it's all about a balanced lifestyle! I have been spending a lot of my time online these last couple of days. I just want to find recipes and more recipes that will help me make this healthy gig fun! I love to cook and try different things! Getting Brent to try new things is a bit of a work in progress but I'll hide a bit more vegetables in his food and he'll never know the difference! What a sneaky devil I am! 

This morning I woke up with this strange desire for applesauce... say whattt? I have no idea where it came from, I must have been dreaming about it! Naturally, I looked online on a homemade recipe because I had apples but no applesauce! I found that apple sauce is pretty much three things, apples, cinnamon and water! So here is my recipe, this recipe is a small serving because I wasn't too sure how I'd feel about it! 

Homemade Apple Sauce
  • 2 apples, pealed and cut up 
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (I love a lot of cinnamon, this one is completely up to you) 
  • 1/4 cup of water

Put all the ingredients into a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Once it's boiling turn the heat down low (I put it at 3) and place the lid on the pan and let is simmer for 15-20 minutes. When it looks all soft and mushy, use a hand blender, processor or potato masher to mush it all up! Now you're all done and have yummy, healthy and homemade applesauce!

My apple sauce looks a little like you know what, but thats thanks to all the cinnamon I used! Next time I make more, I will use different apples. I used granny smith apples and it came out just a little sour (good thing I made a small serving, huh?) Although, I think it did taste delicious, I like a little bit of a kick, I do think that a sweeter apple would taste much better!
