Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce – Our Fall Favorite 
I’m not a huge fan of the fall, simply because it means winter is right around the corner.  BUT one of my favorite fall traditions is taking the kids apple picking and making homemade applesauce.  This year, unfortunately due to the crazy weather we’ve had in Michigan, the apple crops were in short supply and there wasn’t any apple picking.  BUT, that didn’t mean we couldn’t make applesauce.  Thanks Mom for this awesome, and EXTREMELY EASY recipe!  The
recipe is so easy that my 3 year old daughter’s preschool class made it one day in school.  And of course, she had to be dressed as a princess to cook!

Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce - A Fall Favorite
  • Apples - any variety and as many as you want, depending on how much you want to make
  • Orange Juice
  • Sugar
  • Red Hots
  1. Peel core and chop up the apples, smaller pieces cook down faster. Put them into a pot.
  2. Add ½ as much orange juice as you have apples. If your apples go 3 inches up your pot, fill the orange juice 1.5 inches.
  3. Let simmer and stir until the apples become soft and can be mashed. I like lumpy applesauce, but if you like it smoother you can continue to mash them.
  4. Add Red Hots for the cinnamon flavor and the pretty pink hue.
  5. Add sugar to taste if the Red Hots didn't sweeten it enough.
  6. Let cool and ENJOY! This recipe freezes really well so don't worry about making a huge batch!
