LUNCHBOX TREATS: Homemade Applesauce
Purchasing with Amazon Smile enables The AmazonSmile Foundation to donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to a charity of your choice.
First, slice the apples. You don’t need this fancy tool. Use a knife.
Toss them in a dutch oven or other large pot
Add water, cinnamon, and sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and allow to simmer until apples are soft. It took my pot about 45 minutes.
How you process the applesauce is up to you. I have an immersion blender, so I used that. You can put it in a blender or food processor or even just mash the apples with a potato masher if you like your applesauce chunky.
This is our finished product. We spooned it into reusable containers for the kids’ lunchboxes. I’m thinking of trying to make a batch of fruit leather with this mixture too…could be delicious!
