Homemade Applesauce





I have been eating applesauce ever since I was a baby. There used to be a time where it was the only dessert I would eat! For some reason, I never had the urge to make applesauce homemade. Well, at least until now…
 


I wanted to put a little spin on your traditional applesauce recipe. I decided to add a little caramel sauce to the mix to deliver a unique source of sweetness. It’s delicious! Enjoy!




Homemade Applesauce


Ingredients

4 Granny Smith Apples – peeled, cored and chopped into large chunks

Pinch of Salt


Directions

1.     In a large pot, combine the apples, water, lemon, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel sauce, butter and salt.
2.     Cook over medium heat, covered for 25 minutes. Apples should be very tender.
3.     Remove from the heat and break down the apples with a fork.
4.     Transfer the mix into a food processor and pulse until you have reached your desired consistency.
5.     Serve hot or store in the fridge for later!
