I love apples, all kinds of apples, and I love them in every way, shape, and form – pie, cake, brownies, breads, out of hand, you get the point. But, I confess that sometimes I buy more apples than I can eat. Which was the predicament I found myself in today. Since I don’t have anyone else to cook for and no immediate person to give goodies to, I decided against using them in baked goods. Plus, I was craving something healthy.
I used gala and fuji apples, since that’s what I had in my fridge. But, I would imagine that any type of cooking apple would work in this recipe. I also omitted the sugar since I prefer my applesauce as natural as possible. Trust me, you really don’t need it.
Difficulty: EasyCook Time: 15-20 min
4 apples – peeled, cored and chopped
3/4 c. water
1/4 c. sugar (optional, I omitted this)
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
dash of ginger and cardamom (optional)
In a saucepan, combine apples, water, sugar (if using), and spices. Cover and cook over medium heat for 15-20 min., or until apples are soft. Allow to cool, then mash with a fork or potato masher.
