Homemade Applesauce with BAKED Apples

So Applesauce is one of my many “GO TO” Snacks when I want something cold and smooth (like ice cream) so I Decided why not just make it myself instead of buying it at the store every week! This way I KNEW what was in it and I could spice it up!!!

 

Step 1: I started with 6 apples, cored them, and sliced them with the mandolin.

Step 2: Placed the slices on a baking sheet, sprinkled cinnamon on them (MY FAVORITE)

Step 3: Place them in the oven on 350 for 20 minutes, you will smell the apples and cinnamon- i just took one out to make sure it was cooked!

6 apples made 2 baking sheets, doubled on top of each other

Step 4: Place Baked Apples into food Processor

Step 5: Add Liquid (I used 1 lemon squeezed but you could use any combination – fresh squeezed orange, pomegranate, blueberries, strawberries – just blend them or let them sit our from the freezer )

 

Step 6: Then puree until it is at the consistency that you prefer

Step 7- The Finale: Place applesauce in a storage container – glass is best (6 baked apples made 4 cups= 4 servings)

This was a HIT in my house!!! My daughter, who will be 4 May 10th, would not eat jar/ store bought applesauce because she said it tasted like baby food- BUT what I made she LOVES!!!!! So I will need to make a larger batch because this only lasted 2 days =)
