After a weekend filled with champagne and sweets, I needed to detox... at least for a day. Here's a simple recipe for an all natural, no-sugar-added applesauce recipe.
1 1/2 cups water
1. Wash apples.
2. Peel, core and chop apples.
3. Place prepared apples into a large pot. Add water.
4. Cover and let simmer on low to medium heat for about 20-30 minutes.
5. Mash apples in pot.
6. Refrigerate and serve chilled.
|You can use any apple of your choice, I chose Honeycrisp apples.|
|Wash your apples. I love this Kitchen Aid expandable colander. It's so convenient and the the size is adjustable to fit your kitchen sink.|
|Peel, peel, peel.|
|My apple coring station.|
|Place your apples in a large stock pot and add water.|
|Cover and turn the stove to low-medium heat.|
|Simmer for about 20-30 minutes.|
|While the apples simmered, I played with Sophia. She prefers dried pineapples over apples.|
|The apples should be like mush and easily mash-able.|
|I use my utensil to mash the apples against the pot.|
|Refrigerate and serve chilled.|
|Enjoy your heart healthy treat!|
