This is the first time I have ever made applesauce. I looked at three different variations in the Good Housekeeping Cookbook and then I decided to come up with my own take on those versions.
Place 1 cup of water and apple slices in saucepan. On medium heat bring to a boil, while stirring occasionally. I then added 1/3 cup sugar after the apples had boiled for approximately 15 minutes. Continue to stir until well blended.
Remove from heat and pour applesauce into a bowl. I mashed the apples with a potato masher.
I added a teaspoon ground cinnamon and gave it one last good stir.
I am bringing a small bowl to work for my coworkers to try and of course leaving some at home for Randy and I.
