Being it is fall and apples are plentiful I made applesauce to go with dinner tonight. It only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish, so is an easy side dish.
4 medium apples, peeled, cored and chopped small
3/4 cup water
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Sugar to taste
In a heavy medium saucepan add the apples, water and cinnamon. Heat covered over medium heat for about 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. For sweetener I used 2 Tablespoons of granulated sugar, it depends on your taste and as well how tart your apples are.
Mash the apples with a potato masher or a large fork.
Let cool or serve warm.
Makes between 1 3/4 and 2 cups depending on apple size.
