Cynfully Good Homemade Apple Sauce

Looking for something fun to do today? How about making your own apple sauce? Here is the easiest recipe in the world. In about thirty minutes, it's ready to enjoy. You probably have everything in your house already so get to it! What's great about this recipe is it doesn't call for sugar. *

You don't need sugar because....uhhhh.....apples are naturally sweet!!
  • 4 organic apples of your choice ( I like Rome or Granny Smith apples. Delicious or McIntosh don't really work well-too mushy and too sweet)
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Peel and core the apples. Cut the applies into bite size pieces. Heat a medium pot on medium heat. Add the orange juice and cinnamon. Add the diced apples and give the mixture a stir. Cover the pot and reduce the heat to medium-low. All the apples to simmer in the liquid for 30 minutes. Remove the cooked apples from the heat. Allow the apples to cool and mash with a potato masher or in a food processor.

That's it! All finished...............

YUMMY!!! :)

*If you are using Granny Smith apples and they are very tart, stir in a dash of organic maple syrup- about 1/2 a teaspoon should do it. Taste it first, though.  The fresh orange juice might add just enough sweetness to the mix.
