i forgot about these recipes because i had published them to a private blog, but i wanted to make it more accessible to myself (and others who are interested), so i decided to copy them here too.

i found this great recipe for homemade applesauce. in case the link isn’t working (or doesn’t work in the future), here it is:homemade-applesauce-3

homemade applesauce

prep time: 15 min.     cook time: 25 minutes     servings: 12

ingredients
6 lbs. apples, peeled, cored, and cut into quarters
1 c apple juice or apple cider
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 c brown sugar, packed
1 tsp cinnamon, or more to taste
optional ingredients: nutmeg, allspice, butter

directions

  1. combine all ingredients in a large pot and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 25 minutes.
  2. carefully puree in a food processor or blender until smooth. don’t worry if you think you’ve blended it too much; it will thicken in the refrigerator. what i usually do is pour half into the blender and puree until smooth. then the other half, i’ll blend it less, so it’s more chunky and then mix the smooth and chunky together.
  3. store in the fridge and serve !
