Homemade Applesauce: Yummy in Pink


This time of year we get a lot of apples! More than we can handle really. It’s just that every year we take the kids apple picking down the road at a local farm and every year we get carried away. It’s part of the fun though! Anyway, after we get home from our outing, we lug in bushels of apples. While my family wishes I had time to make apple pies out of a lot of those apples, that just ain’t gonna happen. Well, at least not until Thanksgiving.


So, in the meantime, if you’re like me and looking for ideas on what to do with your kids and your apples, here’s a recipe from Emeril’s There’s a Chef in My Soup! cookbook. I seriously don’t know what I did before I had this cookbook!


This recipe is quick, easy, pink and yummy.

  1. Core 6 apples.
  2. Cut the apples into strips, leaving the skins on. (This makes it pink and easy!)
  3. Put the apples into a saucepan.
  4. Add: 1 cup water, 1 Tablespoon lemon juice, 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 cup sugar
  5. Reduce heat and simmer until apples are soft.
  6. Move pan from heat and mash apples until smooth.
  7. Spoon apples into a strainer.
  8. Press the apples against the strainer to push out as much sauce as possible.
  9. Throw away the apple peels.
  10. Put in the fridge until cooled. (About an hour.)

And as they say, it’s good and good for you!
