Part of our New Year’s resolution is to waste less food. Last week we were about to break it when we noticed that we had a few apples in the fruit basket that looked a bit too old. But instead of throwing them out, we decided to try and do some thing with them. But what do you do with a few bad apples?
Applesauce! That’s right we had no idea how to make it but thought, “What the hay, let’s do it!” And then we jumped in the air and gave each other a big high five. And then Declan yelled “How do you like them apples?!” …Actually he didn’t, he just wanted to fit that into this post somehow.
“How do you like them apples?!” Okay enough Declan!
- Servings – 2 to 3
- Prep time – 5 minutes
- Cook time – 15 minutes
- 4 to 6 old apples
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Peel your apples until no skin is showing, a potato peeler will do the trick.
2. Slice your apples but avoid cutting into the core.
3. Chop apples into smaller pieces.
4. In a sauce pan, combine the sugar, apples, water, and cinnamon and cover with a lid. Cook over medium heat for 15 minutes.
5. Then use an immersion blender or potato masher to mash what’s in the pan until a desired consistency.
6. Serve warm or cold and enjoy!
