Apple Sauce

This apple sauce was made from apples my husband picked with the kids on their walk in a backyard of a deserted house. He said they were all laying on the ground, being eaten by bugs and rotting - you can imagine how much cutting and cleaning I had to do! :-)

First, you have to peel the apples, wash them, and cut out all the bad parts. Then cut them into pieces, discarding the core. Rinse them and boil them in water till nice and soft. Check by poking them with a fork.

I took them out and placed them into a blender to be pureed. Add some of the water they boiled in, if you like your apple sauce more liquified. 

And voila! I didn't add any spices or sugar. This is as good as it gets. You could add some cinnamon or nutmeg.. maybe vanilla sugar if you want to experiment with taste.

Now can I get some apple trees for my yard PLAESE!!!!

Yum, homemade applesauce! When I was little my grandmother had an apple tree and every year my mom made applesauce of those apples. Apparently those apples made quite the impression on my cousin as well, since she has exactly those apple trees planted in her garden! She described the taste to an experienced gardener and he got her the right trees.
