Homemade AppleSauce



Hello everyone, so many of us parents were happy / proud to send our kids back to school.  If your child's school is anything like my children's school then they probably encourage healthy snacks.  My children love having healthy snacks but they tend to be picky when it comes to fruits and veggies.  Because of that reason when I pack their snacks I try very hard to make sure the items they do like are as nutritious as possible.  So I make home made applesauce, I control the sugar and what goes into it and I keep it pretty basic and my children love it.  This applesauce can be stored in the freezer for about 6 months or more.  In my house it doesn't stay in the freezer 6 days because my kids love this so much.  So in honor of children going back to school and in honor of fall coming its way, lets go make this recipe.
Oh I almost forgot I will link the video for this down below.

Ingredients:

6 Apples cored, peeled and diced
2 cups of water
2 tablespoons of cinnamon
1/8 to 1/4 cup of brown sugar

Instructions:

In a large dutch oven or pot is what I like to call them.  Add your apples, cinnamon, sugar and water.  You can have this on medium heat like I did in the video but a lower temperature works best. Simmer for about an hour while checking on the water level through that hour.  Add about 1/8 of a cup of water a time if you need more water through the cooking process.  When the apples are so tender they are falling apart, mash them with a potato masher or break up the apples with a whisk.  Let cool and serve or store in your fridge or freezer.  Its that easy and the kids love it, you will love it too because you know everything that goes into it.
