My husband picked me up a half peck of fresh apples today. We all love hot homemade applesauce... its the easiest fall treat.
8 cups pealed and chopped apples
2/3 a cup of maple syrup
2/3 a cup of hard cider (I used Woodchucks) If you do not have hard cider use regular or even apple juice would work.
1 tsp cinnamon
Combine all of your ingredients in a 2 qt sauce pan.
Over medium/low heat let simmer for about 15-20 minutes until the apples start to fall apart. Take a potato masher and give it a quick mash... the longer you mash the more smooth it is.
I like a chunky sauce so I don't go to crazy.
