I’m always amazed at how easy Homemade Applesauce really is! This version has cinnamon in it because that’s how my kids requested it!
Is it really fall if you don’t make a thousand apple and pumpkin recipes that you really don’t make any other time of the year? I mean seriously, homemade applesauce – let’s be honest, it’s good but the stuff at the grocery store is every bit as good! But it’s fall and when the boy looks at me and says “Mom make me some cinnamon applesauce”, well I oblige!
I don’t make big batches of it because I don’t have a desire to can it, we just make enough for a meal and a little leftover for a snack in the next few days!
Can we just stop talking applesauce for a second and focus on the jar! I’m in love with these Weck jars – I mean seriously in love!
I know they aren’t a new thing but I saw them everywhere in Germany and I had to have some! So much so that I actually got on Amazon while in Germany and bought them so that they would be waiting at home for me. I considered them my souvenir!
They come in different shapes and sizes just like Ball jars. While I love my Ball jars as well, these are just a fun variation!
This is an easy recipe, we use an apple peeler, slicer, and corer for quick prep of the apples and after cooking we put it through a food mill for the texture that we like.
You could easily mash it with a hand potato masher right in the pan if you like chunkier applesauce! And if you love your Kitchen Aide attachments this one that does apples would be amazing…..hint hint to the husband!!
This recipe makes just enough for us for a meal. We love applesauce and pork, it’s a match made in heaven!
My pork chop sandwiches go great with this!
