Homemade Applesauce

Applesauce is a great and healthy snack whether you’re a caregiver, in treatments, or into survivorship.  With help from this video, it took me less than an hour to peel, chop, and cook 6 large apples into a batch of delicious homemade applesauce.  I used Jonagold apples but you can use different kinds of apples in the same batch or a different apple all together.  I even watched a few episodes of Friends while I was at it!  🙂  (anyone else loving the fact that Netflix now has the whole series?)

I peeled, cored, and chopped the 6 apples.  Then I placed the apples in a pot with 2 tablespoons of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and a sprinkling of cinnamon.  I covered the apples and cooked them on medium heat until they cooked down.  This took about 30 minutes but I watched them carefully.

What do you think?  Have you ever made homemade applesauce before?  My grandmother always cooks it with a handful of red hots.  It gives the applesauce a little zing, and a great pink color.
