I’m never buying applesauce ever, ever again.  I don’t even know why I ever bought it to begin with.   I guess it is true what they say, knowledge is power.  Now that I know how to do it myself, I will never have to depend on any company to provide it for me again.

The only tears that were shed in the making of this applesauce were the tears of joy.  I haven’t had applesauce in nearly two years.  Living in China has kept me far from many of the foods I really enjoy.  Not because I can’t find them, but because the prices are insanely outlandish here.  For example, at City Shop, an import store here in Shanghai, you can buy a 6 pack snack pack of Mott’s applesauce for $7.25.  That’s crazy talk.   So, you can imagine how happy I was to sit down and devour a large bowl of it for the homemade price of $1.12.  (My recipe made two large bowls.)  Not only was it cheaper, but it tasted 200 times better than anything I could have bought at the store.  Sorry, Mott’s.

It was so tasty, that I am seriously debating on making it again for dinner tonight.

Whether or not you’ve made applesauce before, I highly recommend this recipe.  It’s quick, easy and delicious.  You won’t regret it.

I’ll warn you, though.  I have a sweet tooth, so the 1/4 cup of sugar didn’t bother me at all.  Feel free to cut back on the sugar if you think it will be too sweet for you.

And just so you know, I used Gala apples.

Other than that, I hope you enjoy it and may your tears few!  (Unless they are happy ones like mine.  Then you can cry all you want.)

Instructions

1.  Peel 4 apples.

2.  Core each apple.  If you do not have a kitchen gadget to do this for you, stop what you are doing and go buy one.

3.  Chop the apples into small pieces.

4.  In a medium saucepan, combine the chopped apples with the water, sugar, and cinnamon.  Stir the ingredients until the apples are covered evenly.

5.  Cover and cook over medium heat for 25 – 30 minutes until the apples are soft and mashable.   Stir occasionally.

6.  Your apples should look something like this when they are finished.  I cooked some of the extra juices off because I wanted thicker applesauce.  You can decide how much liquid to keep.  Remove from the fire and allow to cool for a minute or two.

7.  Place your apples in a mixer and beat them until they’ve reached a consistency to your liking.

8.  Scrape the applesauce into a bowl and place it in the refrigerator until cold.  (Or serve warm!)
