MY DAY: Home-made apple sauce

I don’t know what possessed me to buy a whole bag of apples, as I am not a fan of apples.  Let’s say, I love apples, but don’t regularly eat them.

Applesauce, however, is a different story.

My friend, Jeff Carter, is a whiz-bang at apple recipes, and his apple butter is the best I’ve ever eaten.  I remember reading through one of his blogs where he outlined an apple recipe, but could not recall when I read it.  Instead of pestering Jeff for the recipe, I took matters into my own hands, and am so pleased with the results.

This is what I did – but do not count on me for measurements as I just pour things in:

  • Pealed a ton of apples
  • Cut them into smaller pieces
  • Put them into a big pan
  • Added a ton of cinnamon and sugar
  • a few chunks of butter
  • a bit of grated orange peel
  • some nutmeg
  • vanilla extract
  • cup or so of water
  • cook for about 30 minutes
  • blended

Dog gone it!  It was excellent!  A little zesty, and yummy!
