Makes: About a quart.
- 7-8 apples. A variety including Macintosh, Granny Smith, and your other favorites is best.
- Cinnamon, to taste.
- Peel and core the apples, then cut into approximately 1″ pieces.
- Add just enough water to barely cover the bottom of a covered pot along with your apple pieces and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the apples have reduced (I like them to retain a bit of their chunkiness, but you may cook to your desired consistency).
- Remove from heat and serve, sprinkling with cinnamon to taste.
I love this apple sauce. It is a holiday favorite of mine and, as you can see, very easy to make. The majority of the work is in the prep and even that’s not too bad. If you can rope in a helper or two it’s even easier. When I’m home, my mom and I make this together and always have fun chatting across the table as we peel and chop. The sauce stores nicely in the refrigerator for about a week, although mine never lasts that long before being gobbled up 😉 It’s the perfect side to Hanukkah latkes, Christmas Ham, Thanksgiving turkey, etc. Enjoy!
