Homemade Apple Sauce

Why buy apple sauce when it’s SO simple to make your own (and it makes your house smell wonderful)!  Depending on how many apples you’d like to use, you’ll have to adjust the recipe.  I like adding a little fresh squeezed orange juice, using a little less sugar, and a little more cinnamon.  Just remember, you can always add more of anything, but you can’t take it back out once you’ve added it.  Here’s a good starting point:

4 apples , peeled, cored and chopped
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
In a saucepan, combine apples, water, sugar, and cinnamon.
Cover, and cook over medium heat for 20 to 30 minutes, or until apples are soft.
Allow to cool, then mash with a fork or potato masher.
It will be very difficult to mess up this recipe.  If you add too much water, just cook it longer.  If it’s not sweet enough, add more sugar.  If you’ve added too much sugar, just add more apples and it cook it longer (I’ve also heard that you can add lemon juice to balance out the flavors).
