It has been a while since I have posted anything to the blog and I would like to thank my co-blogger Melissa for literally keeping us afloat! That being said, I am bringing a wonderful fall treat to the blog this time that you are sure to enjoy. This recipe does take time and patience but the reward is so worth it! I remember my grandmother making this recipe on a wood-burning stove at the farm in Michigan, that's how good this recipe is! Here is what you will need:
5 Lbs. of either Granny Smith or McIntosh apples (Or any combination thereof.)
1 C. Sugar
1 Tbsp. Ground Cinnamon
1 C. Water
Here is how you make it:
1. You have to peel, core, and cut the apples into eighths. (An apple corer is perfect for this task. Just be careful that you trim off the excess core left on the apple.)
2. Place the apples, sugar, cinnamon, and water into a large pot and bring the water to a slight boil. Ensure to stir the mixture occasionally.
3. Once the water has come to a boil, turn the heat down and let the mixture simmer. Stir the mixture frequently as the apples begin to break down. (You may need to add a little water here and there if you see the mixture is getting too dry. Adding water does not hinder the flavor at all, it actually enhances it!)
4. When complete, the recipe will yield about a quart of the best applesauce you have ever tasted! Enjoy!
