Apple Pie Applesauce

This recipe is so satisfying for the fall! It’s warm, sweet, with a touch of cinnamon and hits the spot every time!
My daughter is not a huge lover of fruit so I make this frequently because she will eat apples this way!

3-4 Large Honey Crisp Apples (you can use any variety of apples but I do believe honey crisp apples make all the difference!)
3/4 Cup of Water
1/2 Sugar
1 TBSP Cinnamon
Pinch if freshly grated Nutmeg

You can make this with less sugar by using a “No Sugar Added” apple juice in place of the water and omit or use very little sugar.

Peel, chop, core, and dice your apples and place in a medium saucepan with all other ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for 20-25 minutes or until the apples are soft. Put the mixture in a blender and purée until smooth. Eat warm or chill and serve later.

Note: before you purée your apples if you feel there is to much liquid just drain a little and set aside. You can always add it back later if needed. My husband likes to drink the extra juice warm if there is any leftover.
