Applesauce – Apples from an Orchard

Your mission (if you have not already had a chance) is to go to an apple orchard and pick your own apples with your loved ones! Every September, my family visits Simmons Farm with a lovely couple and we enjoy the gorgeous fall weather.

So what to do with all the apples you pick?! Try some homemade applesauce! Think about how fresh the applesauce is compared to buying at the convenience store and you don’t have to add any extra ingredients to keep the applesauce fresh. It is a great activity to involve your kids too. My little one enjoys helping by turning the handle to peel/spiral the apples. She then helps to place the apples in a pot (cover with a lid). The apples simmer on low until soft enough to mash. There is no need to add water in the pot while the apples simmer. Add cinnamon based on how much you desire and ENJOY!

What is your favorite apple that you use to make applesauce?
