Quick Apple Sauce

9 Sep

During my baking therapy weekend I looked at some apples that I just knew I was not going to eat and thought, what else can I do? I could have tried my hand at a apple bread or apple tart but I wanted something super fast and easy… apple sauce! My daughter loooves her apple sauce, she’s obsessed. I only usually buy the no-sugar added stuff- because frankly it’s not necessary, apples are sweet enough without it. I have made and canned apple sauce in the past and it required a good deal of time as well as effort and many many more apples than I had. I only had 4 apples but I was hoping that would be enough for two individual servings since it was just me and my daughter having some and I didn’t want to have to can it or anything that required real effort. It made just enough for the both of us to enjoy. It was one of those spur of the moment situations when you don’t necessarily have all the ingredients you would use in an ideal situation so you kind of wing it. That’s what I should call this “wing it apple sauce’ :).

I had 4 apples on hand, two fuji apples, one gala and a granny smith. Peel and core the apples and slice apples. Place all apple slices into a medium sauce pot, add 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. 1 tablespoon of butter and simmer for 30 minutes covered and mash (I used a potato masher)- it was literally that easy, no fuss no muss!

The apple sauce was sweet without being overly so, it had a lot of great flavor from the multiple kinds of apples I used and the spices were spot on. I would totally recommend this for any time you just want a snack, couldn’t be easier!
