Homemade Applesauce

One of our favorite things to do as a family in the Fall is go apple picking. We always end up with tons of apples, sometimes more than we know what to do with. Apples can be used to make so many things from sweet to savory. My son loves apples and his favorite apple treat is homemade applesauce. It is super simple to make and very tasty, oh and did I mention cost effective? All you really need are apples, plus whatever you have on hand for extra flavor. Brown sugar, cinnamon, I've never tried it but I bet even some maple syrup would be delicious.

To make the applesauce:
  1. Core, peel, and chop roughly 4* apples; you can use what ever kind you want but the sweeter varieties make for better applesauce.
  2.  Boil until fork tender.
  3.  Blend in a food processor with whatever flavorings you like (I just use cinnamon) until it reaches the consistency you want.
*This makes about a medium sized container full, obviously if you want to make more, use more apples.
