Cinnamon Applesauce

Someone gave me about 15 pounds of apples a few days ago and they were at the stage where they needed to be eaten soon. I decided to make a big pot of cinnamon applesauce.
These apples were sweet so they didn't need much added sweetening. I used just under one cup of brown sugar for the 15 pounds of cut up apples. I added a few tablespoons of lemon juice, 2 cinnamon sticks and 4 cups of water and let them cook on the stove top for about 45 minutes.

Java used the potato masher to take care of some of the larger chunks and then we each scooped up a dish of hot apple goodness. Easy, delicious...and my house smells all cinnamon-y wonderful!

  1. We just made cinnamon applesauce yesterday, too. Isn't that the best smell?

    I finally made your bread this past week, too. It's SO good! I haven't made bread in so long that the breadmaker is hidden somewhere in the basement, so I just baked it in the oven. It came out perfectly. Thanks so much for that recipe!
