I was organizing our fridge the other day and noticed we had a lot of bad apples taking up space and causing the other fruit to go bad too. I started wondering about what I could do with them instead of throwing them out without just cutting off the bad parts. I decided that I would make some apple sauce, which was a great choice because I had been craving apple sauce for the past few days anyway.
Many of the recipes that I found online were a little too confusing or they added too many ingredients that would overpower the pure taste of apple. So, I pulled a few of the steps from different recipes and made my own!
-8 apples of any kind (depending on how much you want to make, the 8 apples I used made 4 full mason jars of apple sauce)
-3 to 4 teaspoons of brown sugar
-2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
1st you need to peel and slice the apples into cubes that are roughly the same size.
2nd you need to place the apples in a saucepan and put enough water in it so that the apples are swimming.
3rd you need to add the brown sugar and let the water come to a rolling boil.
4th you need to turn down the apples to medium heat and let them sit like that for about an hour, or until your apples get soft enough to mash.
5th you need to drain a bit of the excess water and take a potato masher to mash your apples. After you begin mashing the apples you should add the lemon juice.
6th you need to let the apple sauce cool a bit before putting it into jars then refrigerate the apple sauce and enjoy once they have completely cooled!
Things to Remember
This applesauce it a bit more chunkier but it tastes super delicious and perfectly sweet. Of course, you can use whatever apples you have on hand. I’m sure every type of apple will make a great applesauce. Also, feel free to add whatever sweetener to the apples and any other types of spices you like!
