Tomorrow marks the first day of Fall(although it surely doesn’t feel like it here in Texas).
Homemade applesauce…what better way to get my spirit moving towards my favorite time of the year. Sweet, cinnamon-y goodness.
Purchased applesauce is actually gluten free but I decided to make it from scratch. There is a simple pleasure in cooking apples with cinnamon and sugar to create such an aromatic and tasty treat.
NOTE: This would also be delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Not exactly apple pie a la mode…but apple, sans crust, a la mode. A fine gluten free dessert indeed.
5 apples, peeled
1/2 cup water
1/8 – 1/4 cup sugar, depending on the variety of apple you choose(or you could just eliminate the sugar all together)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
-Chop apples and place in medium pot.
-Add the rest of the ingredients and cook on medium heat until soft(about 15min).
-Remove from heat and let apple mixture cool.
-Use a potato masher to creat applesauce.
