The weather has been up and down here, so I'm trying to tempt fall by whipping up seasonally appropriate recipes.
Applesauce is comforting because it simmers away on the stove without much work and it makes the house smell heavenly.
I decided to make the simplest applesauce possible - apples (unpeeled, because I hate to get rid of the nutrients and fiber in the skin), a little bit of water (approximately 1/4 cup per 4 large apples), and a couple tablespoons of lemon juice for acidity. Cook on low for 25 minutes and then use an immersion blender to make it smooth.
I made such a large batch that it's obvious I'll have to freeze some for later use, which is fine by me.
