First Applesauce

While shopping over the weekend at one of my favorite stores {Marshalls} I found a baby food maker on clearance! I thought about London, my best friends little girl immediately and chose to make one of her favorite foods. And so we started with Applesauce!

The Verdict

London said there is absolutely no comparison in the flavor from this applesauce and the stuff from the jars.Well, that's what I heard her say! Now that I know how easy it is to make —I’m pretty sure I’ll always make homemade applesauce going forward.

4 pounds apples, peeled and cored
4 strips of lemon peel
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon or 1 cinnamon stick
1 cup water

Peel, core and chop your apples into large chunks, about 8 pieces per apple. Put all of the ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce it to a simmer and cover the pot. Cook for approximately 30 minutes, or until apples are quite soft. Fish out the lemon peels and whole cinnamon stick, if you used one, and let it cool. Puree in a food processor, blender or food mill and freeze in small portions.
