Homemade Applesauce

Makes Approx.: 4 cups
Servings:Varies
Serving Size:Varies

Ingredients:
6 organic sweet apples
2 tsp. organic cinnamon (may add more if desired).
2 Tbs. freshly squeezed organic lemon juice

Prep:
Prepare apples, core, leave skins on, and cut into 1/2 inch pieces in size.

Making It:
Put apples into a large pot and add about 1/3 way full with filtered water, but not covering the apples.  Cover and bring to boil, cook for 10 minutes. (The skins should be shiny…this is the pectin from the apples.) When done, mash the apples with a potato masher and add the lemon juice and the cinnamon. Put 1/2 of the apples at a time in a food processor and process about 15-20 seconds, this makes it a chunky applesauce, but easier to eat. Store in a covered glass container.

Caution: Peel the apples for those who cannot chew the peeling (babies, children and elders without teeth) before cooking, to prevent choking.

ENJOY!
