The downside of being married to a dentist is that everyone wants to have their teeth cleaned on Saturday mornings, so my husband works two Saturdays a month.While cleaning the kitchen this morning, I noticed several apples that were on the verge of rotting (kind of like the teeth my husband works on.) Well, when life gives you apples, why not make applesauce? So that’s what I did! Instead of looking up a recipe online, I decided to experiment.
Now I just need some pork chops to go with my applesauce! (Any Brady Bunch fans out there?)
- 7 apples
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tsp cinnamon optional
Peel and chop apples, and add to microwave-proof container (ie Corningware). Add 1/2 cup of water, and microwave until apples are softened (approximately 4 minutes).
Attach food grinter attachment to KitchenAid mixer. Add softened apple chunks to the grinder.
When grinding is done, add 2 tsp of cinnamon to the applesauce.
For those who don’t have a stand-up mixer, be sure to sufficiently soften your apples in the microwave, and then use a potato masher to reach the desired consistency.
