Who knew it could be so easy? Especially after seeing other recipes needing things like food mills. Do you have a food mill? Do you know, I used to have one, but (head bent in shame) I did not know what it was. Someone had left it behind somewhere and I ended up with it. It had a wooden handle and was a large coney thing. I had no idea and after a few years, got rid of it at a rummage sale for the school.
Anyway, I did not need it after all. You can use it, but you don’t need it!
But you do need apples. A variety works well. But I was only making the sauce because I was too lazy to go to the store to get applesauce. So I sure as heck wasn’t going to the store to get apples for the sauce. But I had a bag of some kind of apple called ‘Envy’. And they were envious. Very sweet. I peeled and cut them with my apple corer/slicer. Them I diced them further, added about a cup of water to 6 apples and let them simmer away.
Which they did, beautifully.
When they were tender, I added some cinnamon and put them in the blender, adding some apple juice if it seemed too thick. It took 3 batches to blend and the third batch I just didn’t blend at all, but smashed with a potato masher, wanting to keep some texture other than that of baby food to it.
It was delicious!
Pretty simple. Take apples, peel, chop, cook, adding water as needed, until soft and mash!
Then eat. Warm, cold or in between.
