An Apple a Day
My husband loves to cook up some apples around this time of year. It makes the house smell amazing, and his recipe is delicious! It’s great as a snack on its own, as a side to pork chops, as a topping on some vanilla ice cream, or as a sweetener for your morning oatmeal.
Homemade Stewed Apples ~ Homemade Apple Sauce
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cardamom (optional)
6 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
Heat up the water in a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat until it is simmering. Stir in cinnamon and cardamom.
Pour in the apple slices.
Turn the heat down and simmer, uncovered, for at least an hour – until the apples are tender and the water is nearly gone.
You can also do this in a crock pot – just cover the mixture and turn it on low for 4-8 hours.
If you want to make applesauce out of the stewed apples, simply blend the mixture in a food processor or blender. For lumpier applesauce simply blend using your mixer.
