Simple homemade cinnamon applesauce - sweet just as it is - no added sugar is needed!
Dessert, Side Dish
about 8 apples
Peel, cut and core apples. Place in a 4 qt. sauce pan.
Add apple cider and cinnamon sticks. (Push cinnamon sticks down into the apples to cover them.)
Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat, stir and cover. Let sit for at least 15 minutes.
Remove the cinnamon sticks and mash the apples with a fork until just chunky. If you like smooth applesauce, place the mixture in a food processor and blend until smooth.
Allow to cool completely and place in a large jar or airtight container.
Recipe makes about 1 quart of applesauce.
