Quick and Yummy Applesauce

 

I picked some apples from my dear friend Connie's (AKA Ethel) apple tree.  With all the rain in Georgia this year they seem to be doing better than ever.  I made some applesauce/apple butter and used my VitaMix to make it super smooth! 

Wash and peel apples – cut up and place in large pot – add just a little water, or apple cider, put a lid on the pot.  Check frequently to make sure there is enough juice/water in the pot for the apples to cook.  If not, keep adding a little at a time. Add a little cinnamon and some sugar if needed (I used a little turbinado – it all depends on your personal preference and/or sweetness of the apples you are using).  It is always best to just add a little at a time and taste test.  Cook apples until soft – use a potato masher for course applesauce or put in your VitaMix/blender to make a super smooth sauce!  That's it!!!  (You can also use a slow-cooker, but I like to just get 'er done so I do it on the stove top!)  

The end result was delicious! Use it to top pancakes, waffles or spread on toast, (instead of butter/jelly etc). or just enjoy as is!
