Happening to have a neighbor who gifted me with a big bag full of sweet golden apples inspired me to cook some up last week.
It was a big hit with our rather ordinary baked chicken breast with stuffing and green beans. It is super simple to make if you want to give it a try!
Homemade Spiced Applesauce
3 lbs (about 6 medium) apples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
1/2 cup water
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons sugar
Put into heavy pot and bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer stirring occasionally until apples are tender. Lightly mash with potato masher. Taste for sweetness, add a little more white sugar if needed. Add a sprinkle of brown sugar and cinnamon to taste before serving. Serve warm.
