If you want a tasty, healthy treat that's cheap, super simple to make and delivers big flavor, try this recipe for homemade applesauce. It's one of those dishes that kids can help you make, and which will leave smiles all around.
- 4 apples - peeled, cored and chopped
- ¾ cup water
- ¼ cup white sugar
- ½-¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon, to taste
In a saucepan, combine apples, water, sugar, and cinnamon.
Cover, and cook over medium heat until apples are soft, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Allow to cool, then put them in a blender and blend until smooth. If you don't have a blender, then you can mash them with a fork or potato masher.
Serve alone, or over ice cream or frozen yogurt.
