Homemade Applesauce

What is it about fall that just makes you want to stay inside baking and cooking? I just love cozy fall recipes! Here in Alaska we are already feeling the chill in the air, so it’s the perfect time to spend some time in the kitchen. I just love all things pumpkin and apple and all the delicious recipes that you can create. With apples in abundance right now some homemade applesauce was in perfect order to whip up in my kitchen. It is really easy and can be served in a variety of ways. As I say on my YouTube Channel Dawn of Cooking come along with me and let’s get started!

Start with Four Large Apples

I used my apple corer and sliced the apples in thin uniform slices. I like leaving the peels on but if you don’t like the skin just go ahead and peel. If you have an apple peeler corer slicer they work great also. Place the sliced apples in a saucepan.

All sliced and ready to cook!

Add 3/4 Cup water and a heaping teaspoon of cinnamon. Next add 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar and stir. Cover saucepan and simmer on the stovetop until tender.
