Homemade Apple Sauce

applesauce

Made from whatever combination of apples we have on hand, all we do is peel, chop and simmer them with enough water to come to just below the top of the apples in the pot.

After an hour or so on the stove it should be ready to eat, but you’ll know for sure when most of the liquid is gone and the apples are falling apart.  We prefer to leave it rustic, so we don’t mash or blend ours. Instead of adding sugar, we adjust the sweetness by the different types of apples we add to the pot.  This particular batch was made from Gala, Honey Crisp and even a couple of Granny Smith’s because we love a little bit of tartness. So simple and wonderful it’s hard to believe we don’t make it every day!

About welcomebabysl

Welcoming a newborn baby into your home is an overwhelming experience. Like other first-time parents, you are probably experiencing feelings of excitement and anticipation, as well as anxiety and uncertainty. The next few years of your child's life are very critical, and parents play a vital role in promoting healthy growth and development. Because children don’t come with a user’s manual, parents are left to follow their instincts, rely on previous knowledge, research the answers or ask family and friends for advice. It is definitely a learning experience, but not one that has to be done alone. Welcome Baby offers several different levels of support to first-time parents.
