Homemade Applesauce

Yesterday my daughters and I picked fresh apples from Grandma's backyard.
Upon arriving home the first thing my oldest said was, can we make applesauce like Tia??
So here we are!! I looked up this easy recipe online, hope you enjoy!
  I don't think we'll ever buy jarred apple sauce again,
this is tooooo easy!
10 apples (your choice)
1/2 Tb cinnamon *optional
1/2 cup water

Let's get started, peel all the apples! Let the kids handle this part..

Chop into chunks..
Place in a good size pot, add the water & cinnamon.
Cover & bring to a boil, reduce heat & simmer for 20 minutes.

Depending on how chunky ( mash with a potato masher) or smooth (blend)
you prefer your applesauce is up to you. We blended more like pulsed until our desired texture!!

Voila, you have homemade applesauce, yes it's that EASY!
Pour into a clean mason jar, allow to cool or not.
Taste for desired sweetness, leave as is or add brown sugar.
Once cooled, store in the refrigerator & enjoy for days to come.
I'm sure ours will last 2 days tops!!
 This recipe filled a quart sized jar a little over 3/4 of the way up.
