My mom has canned applesauce for as long as I can remember, so I love this book. It shares such a sweet family memory.
To go with this book, we decided to make our own applesauce!
Ready to go! I added some water, maybe a cup or so so the apples wouldn’t burn to the bottom, and threw in some cinnamon sticks.
Simmer away until your apples are cooked through.
Ignore the mess…life happens, kitchens get messy…move along! ; )
That’s it, you’re done! Enjoy your applesauce however you like. It’s great on its own, and is fantastic on pork chops! Our favorite way to enjoy it is mixed in with yogurt, with some cinnamon. Yum!
Note: I would not recommend this way of making applesauce for making and canning large batches. While it is delicious, it is a lot of prep up front. Let your food mill do the work for the big batches!
