Easy Homemade Applesauce
"Baked apples" with lots of yummy cinnamon have made a appearance as a side dish many times for dinner in our household. But one night, I got a little too "timer" happy with the microwave, put them in a bit too long, and made applesauce instead!
This is truly a simple and easy recipe. Just gather the necessary ingredients and kitchen utensils to prep your apples and you're just minutes away from having homemade applesauce! Doesn't get any better than that!
What you need:
4 medium sized Apples
pinch or two of nutmeg
Begin by washing and peeling your apples...
Next slice your apples using a similar apple slicing tool or using a knife and place them in a (microwave safe) glass baking dish....
Now add your cinnamon and nutmeg.... I'd say a tablespoon plus of cinnamon and a teaspoon of nutmeg; but really it is going to depend on your taste buds! We like a lot of cinnamon around here!
Add about a 1/2 tablespoon to 1TBS. of white sugar-- the amount also will depend on how sweet you want it.
Next put the bowl in the microwave and casually place the lid on top; you want air to be able to escape, but you don't want applesauce everywhere! Put in microwave for 5-6 minutes, or until it resembles applesauce. If you'd rather opt for "baked apples," put in the microwave for 3-4 minutes or until tender....
Stir it up and Enjoy!
