(recipe, Bluebird Farmers Market & CSA)
Today, I visited the Bluebird Market in Thomaston, Georgia where Farmer Bob showed up with his locally grown apples. He told us how wonderful applesauce is when made with 1/2 Rome Apples and 1/2 Granny Smith. So, I rushed home with my apples and made some applesauce. It is so EASY and healthy.
- 2 Granny Smith Apples
- 2 Rome Apples
- 2 tsp. sugar (optional)
- dash of cinnamon (optional)
- dash of salt
- I leave the skins on to maintain the nutrients, but you can peel them if you like. Cut apples into small chunks (leave out core and seeds) and place in a saucepan. Add 2 tbs. of water. Cook on low until soft and mushy (about 30 minutes). Add sugar, salt and cinnamon. Stir and serve hot or cool it down.
- The benefits of making your own applesauce is there are no preservatives added and it is fresh and tasty.
