Homemade Applesauce

Lately Ben and I have been getting a Bountiful Basket every week. Bountiful Baskets is a non-profit food co-op that sells (mostly) local produce. Every week you pay for your basket every Monday(we get the organic one for $25) and then when you pick it up it is full of all kinds of fruits and veggies. You never know what’s going to be in it. Which is so much fun!

But lately we have been getting an abundance of small-ish mealy apples what neither Ben or I like. They have been building up in the crisper drawer of our fridge for a few weeks now so Ben decided to do something with them and made applesauce! Last Christmas Ben’s aunt gave us a food masher machine-thing and we hadn’t used it until now. It worked so well and the apple sauce turned out amazing.

Quarter the apples and place them in a large pot with about 2-3 inch of water in the bottom. Cover the apples and steam for 15-20 minutes. Make sure that the water doesn’t run out.

Run the apples through your food strainer machine-thing. Serve with cinnamon and brown sugar 🙂
