Homemade Applesauce

 It is a family tradition to make applesauce and put our teamwork to work. There is something about washing, peeling, cutting and stirring that make the spirits rise.....and the aromas, no candles needed! Our biggest batch we ever made was 50 quarts, we enjoyed that for a long time. =)

 Yield: about 3-1/2 cups

  • 8 cups chopped peeled tart apples (about 3-1/2 pounds)
  • 2 T ground cinnamon
  • 2 T water
  • In a large pot place the water, combine apples and cinnamon. Cover and cook over medium-low heat 30-40 minutes or until apples are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Mash apples slightly if desired. Serve warm or cold.
