I almost forgot that I also made apple sauce recently! I'm picky when it comes to the kind of apples I eat out of hand, and of those they have to be ultra crisp. So when the last few apples I had started to get a little soft I decided to take advantage of that and not let them go to waste.
Apple sauce is extraordinarily easy to make: peel, core and dice your apples of choice, then simmer them with a small amount of water until they start to break down and become soft. I mashed them to achieve a more chunky texture and seasoned them with brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and vanilla. Yum!
