If you're family is anything like ours, sometimes we have apples for a bit too long and no one wants to eat them. Those are perfect for making apple sauce. This recipe comes from Appetite to Play. Ingredients: 9 large Apples (any variety) 1 cup (250 mL) Water 1 Lemon (juiced) 1 tsp. (5 mL) Cinnamon Instructions Wash and dry the apples, then peel. Chop apples into bite-size pieces. Remove core and seeds. Place chopped apples, water, lemon juice and cinnamon in a large pot Stir with a wooden spoon. Heat on medium-high until mixture comes to a boil. Stir frequently. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer until apples are very soft and mushy, stirring every few minutes for about 10 minutes. Turn off stove and remove from heat. Stir to cool or refrigerate. Optional: Add raisins or rhubarb (in season).
