Cinnamon Applesauce

We love to head out to Marshall, Virginia (such a pretty ride!) and pick apples every October. And like most years, this year we were overzealous and picked WAY too many apples haha. Like 5 pecks…which is approximately 160 apples. Oops! There’s no possible way two adults and one toddler can eat that many apples before they start to spoil (although it does make a great baby food!) so I make Cinnamon Applesauce! This recipe is also great for canning and I’ll include a link to a great instructional page below as well. Cinnamon applesauce has to be one of the easiest and most liked side dishes that I make. Enjoy!

Cinnamon Applesauce

Ingredients
  

  • 6 apples
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon feel free to add more or less according to taste

Instructions
 

  • Peel the apples. Remove the core and chop them into about 1 inch chunks.
  • Add apple chunks, water, and cinnamon to medium sized saucepan.
  • Cook over medium-low heat for 35-40 minutes stirring occasionally until tender. The stirring also "mashes" the apples and turns it into sauce. We like our applesauce more chunky but if you like it more sauce-like, use a potato masher instead of a spoon.

Notes

I've frequently made cinnamon applesauce just to use up the random apple in our fruit bin and this recipe has worked great for all types of apple!
