Easiest Homemade Applesauce

I have been making applesauce forever... I marinade chicken in it.. I marinade pork in it... recently I've also used it in my baking as a substitute for fats....

One of the reasons I make so much applesauce at the moment is because we get a fruit basket at work every Monday, and guaranteed there's always leftover apples on Friday afternoon... they just get chucked each week when the new fruit box arrives, so I decided to salvage them...

At first I was turning em into baked goods to take back to the office.. but baking is turning into a rather expensive hobby, so turning the apples into applesauce is cheaper and easier!!

Here's how you make your own...

Easiest Homemade Applesauce!


Peel your apples....  and core them.... I love my little apple shaped apple corer!! BEST kitchen tool EVER!!

Chop the apples into small pieces and pop in a pot.... add water... about half a cup...
    

Sprinkle on some cinnamon & brown sugar... do this to taste... (now would also be the time to add a squeeze of lemon juice if you have it - I didn't today..)

Cover pot... bring to boil... take lid off.. then put on low heat and simmer.... I left a fair bit of liquid in mine this time because I was going to blitz it with a hand blender... if I'm using it to marinate chicken, I let the liquid cook off more....

 
Blitz with a hand blender and voila!! Applesauce!!

Now.. this is probably much like any other applesauce recipe you'll find out there... I know it certainly is almost the exact twin of Mrs Biscuit's recipe!  But the reason I'm posting this because it's a critical step to making the most delicious ribs EVAH!! Recipe is on its way!!
