Fall Cooking: Apple Sauce

Apples! There's nothing like a fresh, local apple to tell you that autumn has arrived. My favourite apple is the honeycrisp which is a large apple that is crisp and juicy. It's a slightly tart apple that's perfect for eating or baking. I decided to try apple sauce.
This is the recipe that I used, taken from

2 apples - peeled, cored and shredded
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons brown sugar

  1. Place the apples into a medium saucepan and sprinkle the cinnamon on top. Then pour the water over the apples and cinnamon. Cook on medium low heat until the apples are mushy (approximately 20-30 minutes).
  2. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the brown sugar.
This is what the ingredients look like when they have just been added to the saucepan.

This is what the apples look like when they are cooking.

This is how the apple sauce looks when it is finished. You will get about 2 or 2 1/2 cups of apple sauce.

The apple sauce can be served with pork or as a dessert either by itself or with ice cream. It would even go nicely on a warm apple pie. Mmmmm!
