To make applesauce you will need:
- 1/4 cup of apple cider
- Five to six large apples
- Two tablespoons of brown sugar
- Dash of cinnamon (optional)
- Potato mashers
- Large saucepan
- Wash and chop apples. Make sure the apples are completely washed before preparing your applesauce. After washing, peel and seed the apples and chop them up into small pieces.
- Add apples and cider to saucepan. After chopping the peeled apples, add them to a large saucepan with the apple cider and cook on low heat. Be sure to cover the lid of the saucepan. Cook for approximately 20 to 25 minutes.
- Mash the mixture. After cooking the mixture for the desired time length, remove the saucepan cover and mash the mixture together using a potato masher. If the apples have cooked properly, the mixture should be easy to mash and should be somewhat lumpy in texture and consistency.
- Add brown sugar and cinnamon. After the mixture is completely mashed to the desired consistency, add the brown sugar and cinnamon to the applesauce. Mix well.
- Serve and enjoy! Applesauce can be served cold or warm, and may be eaten right after it has been prepared. You may decide to add more sugar or cinnamon to the applesauce depending on taste and preference. You may also add walnuts or berries to the top, if you wish.
