Homemade Apple Sauce

Who doesn't love applesauce? Hot, cold. with cinnamon. without. Its just one of those great foods we all remember fondly from our childhood. Enjoy this quick baby recipe while you wait for details of our moving days. Its getting hectic around here, but we're all packed and just waiting on the moving crew. Sorry to be so absent from here, but we've been going non stop for the past week. I promise to catch y'all up on all things PCS related in the next few days (and thank you for letting me vent about the Medical Records Ordeal last week). OK, Here's how to make your own applesauce:

Homemade Applesauce
6 golden or red delicious apples, sliced

Cooking Instructions:
- bring 1 inch of water to boil
- add apples in a steamer basket and cover for 10-12 minutes

(You want to leave the apple skins on until after cooking to retain as much of the nutrients as possible)
- let cool, reserving the cooking liquid
- scrape flesh from the skin and puree flesh until smooth

- add cooking liquid if desired (I just put the apple juice in a bottle and let Lil' H drink it. That's where so many of the nutrients are.)

Storing Options:
3 days in the frig in an air tight container
3 months in the freezer (try splitting it up into single servings by freezing in ice cube trays. then place "ice cubes" in freezer safe plastic bag)
