This is a simple, inexpensive, healthy recipe that should last about two weeks.
7 medium apples, sliced
1/4 c water
Allow the apples and water to simmer on medium-low in a covered pot until apples soften. Occasionally stir with a fork and mash up the apples once they have softened. Uncover the pot and let the liquid evaporate. Season with cinnamon and nutmeg to your liking. Makes about 3 cups. Enjoy!
- For a smoother texture, place the applesauce in a blender and bled until smooth.
- Applesauce is a great fat substitute for baking cakes, brownies, etc. It does not work as well for cookies though. I suggest substituting half the amount of fat in your recipe with applesauce.
