criss cross apple sauce

Let’s just get right down to it- although I try to post recipes and cooking how-tos every so often, I am no expert on the subject.  There’s a short list of dishes I can make successfully, and truthfully most nights the salad bar at Whole Foods calls my name so much louder than my own kitchen down the hall.  That being said, there is one treat I’ve always had a knack for: applesauce.  It’s true, when it comes to applesauce, Motts ain’t got nothin’ on me!  This 3-ingredient recipe may seem simple to some, but there’s something about achieving a perfectly lumpy, mushy, yet smooth consistency that’s extremely rewarding.  It’s sweet, fresh, and the packed with cinnamon-y goodness.  A few years ago when I was living with my brother, I made more applesauce than any person should ever be able to consume (that boy loves his apple sauce), and people are always asking me for the recipe, sooooo without further ado…

To make your own applesauce, peel and chop apples into cubes (cut a few larger pieces for chunkier texture).  Pile apples into a large pot and add water (not so much that the apples are covered, just enough to allow the apples to be mixed with a wooden spoon).  Heat the apples, stirring occasionally until the apples begin to soften.  Then, gradually add in sugar 1/4 cup at a time- tasting as you go.  Season liberally with cinnamon (if you have any cinnamon sticks, throw those in too!).  Serve warm or cold.  Enjoy!
