Hello everyone! I’d like to share with you the recipe for one of my favorite Thanksgiving sides. This applesauce is something I look forward to every year. My mom has been making it every year for as long as I can remember. It’s best served warm and works great as a light dessert for cold nights. I don’t have exact measurements but this recipe is so easy, you can’t mess it up.
What you’ll need:
5-6 Granny Smith Apples
How to make it:
- Peel and core apples then cut into small pieces (will cook faster). I like to leave some of the peel on the apples to make it a little more chunky.
- Cover with just enough water to cover the apples and cook on medium/high flame until the apple basically falls apart.
- Add sugar during cooking to taste and cinnamon.
- Reduce heat to a low simmer. Check apples frequently but it usually takes about an hour.
- Strain the applesauce through a potato ricer to get any large peels or seeds that you don’t want.
Serve with a ham or turkey and enjoy!
