I had no clue how easy applesauce was to make. It’s one of my favorite things to eat, but I’ve always purchased it in the jar. I discovered popular blogger and crafter Soule Mama’s adorable blog post on making it from scratch with her children and decided to try it out.
First, I washed, peeled and cored a few apples.
Then I cut them into chunks and placed them in hot water on the stove.
I allowed them to cook under low heat until they were very soft. A few mixes with my spoon and I suddenly had applesauce!
The challenging part is seasoning it. I used cinnamon, brown sugar and raisins, but it was still a bit tart. This may be due to the apples I used (I think I used Granny Smith’s), or the wrong, or insufficient, seasoning blend. Since it’s so easy to make, I’m going to experiment a bit until I discover just the right combination! Soule Mama also ate hers with a bit of ice cream. That definitely sounds delicious!
I’m glad I have another dish to add to my ever-growing recipe collection :)
