Applesauce, homemade and homegrown

Applesauce must be one of the easiest recipes on the planet. And as an extra bonus it’s the perfect thing to make when you’re enjoying an afternoon or evening in as it makes the house smell absolutely heavenly.

In the early stages of my pregnancy I was obsessed with applesauce as it was one of the few things I could stomach. Now that I am eating everything in sight it doesn’t have quite the same cache, but it is delicious nonetheless. Especially the homemade variety made from apples grown in my own backyard.

Here is my no-recipe recipe for applesauce:

Peel and chop up a bunch of apples. Put them in a saucepan with a tiny bit of water and a giant spoonful of cinnamon and any other spices you have handy (cardamom, cloves, nutmeg, etc). Cover the pot and simmer on low heat for a long time, stirring occasionally, until the apples turn to mush.

I poured mine into two big jam jars, and stuck one in the fridge for eating right now (perfect as a midnight snack), and one in the freezer for later.
