Applesauce Recipe

The apple trees are just amazing this year in Denver, last year, it was peaches. I was just thinking about making apple sauce to freeze and enjoy over the winter. Two years ago, we received a bunch of apples picked from a friend’s tree in Ft Collins and it was the first time I had made sugar-free applesauce and it was a big hit! These friend’s live an hour and half away and I knew a trip was not in the cards or even if their tree had produced this year.

I see all the neighbor’s trees just hanging with so much fruit and the apples are falling and rotting on the ground.  And to my surprise, my neighbor posted this sign….

Free Apples

 

We pulled the truck up next to the tree to gather the high hanging fruit before the storm rolled in…… {oops, got him with his eyes closed}

Applesauce Recipe – Sugar Free

12 cups of peeled and sliced apples

3 tsp of cinnamon {more or less to your liking}

2 tsp of organic vanilla

2 cups of water

1/2 lemon fresh squeezed

Add water, cinnamon and vanilla to water bring to a low boil, peel and slice apples, and squeeze fresh lemon on apples, add to pot and simmer, stirring occasionally, keep on low until the apples break down and  mashed with a fork.  I prefer a chunky applesauce, if you prefer it more smooth creamy consistency, add more water.

Let cool, eat warm or cold.

Enjoy!!
