This morning I woke up to snow. Snow! In late February. In Vancouver. Last week I was comfortably wearing just a long-sleeved shirt outdoors. Oh well! I decided to roll with it and make some warming foods. I had a big bowl of apples on the counter that needed to be used up, so I thought I would make some applesauce. There are few things cozier than the smell of warm apples and cinnamon. Mmm.
Yield: 5-8 servings
10 apples (peeled, cored and chopped)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups water
Put all ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 3o minutes, stirring occassionaly.
Remove from heat. Mash the apples with a potato masher until the apples are all broken down but the mixture is still a bit chunky.
Serve, either warm or refrigerated.
