I have been thinking about trying my grandmother’s recipe that she made and had on hand at all times while I was growing up.  This baby has me craving apples like I never have before!  Unfortunately, the recipe has been misplaced, so I went in search of something similar.

 

I didn’t find what I was looking for, so instead I decided to try my hand at one of the Pioneer Woman’s simple applesauce recipes.  I usually find exactly what I am looking for with her.  I’m not a huge fan of cooking and when I do it I want it to be reminiscent of what I ate as a child.  Her recipes are always great!

I took the kids to our local orchard and we picked out some Honeycrisp apples for tasting.  I have not knowingly had a Honeycrisp despite the fuss everyone makes of them. A fuss worth making, though, now that I’ve had them!

 

They made the perfect applesauce!

 

I only made a small batch because I didn’t want to waste all of my apples if I totally screwed it up, so I adapted hers and made a mistake or two.  That describes most of my cooking and baking…  Turned out great!

 

  • 3.5 Ibs Honeycrisp Apples
  • The juice of one whole lemon
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup Mott’s apple juice (40% less sugar variety)
  • 6 dashes of cinnamon (3 for each child helping me…)
  •  

I let them cook for about 35 minutes on medium high heat, until they were pretty mushy and could easily be mashed with a hand masher.

 

Then I ladled it all into my blender to be pureed.  I wanted them completely lump-less, just like my grandmother’s.

 The consistency was that of an Apple Butter- thick,creamy and perfect!

 

This was the perfect activity to do with my kids on a rainy weekend – easy, delicious and good for you!  I can see this being something we do every fall to welcome in the crisp weather 🙂
