I had a bag of apples from the farmer's market sitting in the fridge and I needed to do something with them. I thought about making another pie, but after how frustrating the crust was the last time, I decided to do something else. I did a little research to see what people put in their applesauce and then said "That's easy!" So I made applesauce.
Erik Approved Super Yum Yum Apple Sauce
12 Macintosh apples, cored, peeled and chopped
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups water
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Throw all of the above ingredients into a pot over medium heat and cover. Cook until the apples mush with a fork or potato masher. Serve warm since that is the best way to have apple sauce.
This was also Chad approved. We had it tonight with pork chops (apple sauce on the side, since Chad thinks that fruit+meat=unmanly). My guys ate it up! 12 apples went in and I think there is enough applesauce left that would equate 2 or 3 apples. Chad also told me that my apple sauce "tastes like fall."
