drowning in apples

ok, so you all know i had the apple party. . .loved every part of it except the pressure for us to eat like 10 apples a day with the leftover decor. so i searched for a recipe for applesauce and found some, this is what i tried. i think it was delightful and oh so yummy:

peel, core and cut into 1 inch chunks- 4 lbs of apples (about 12 apples-i left the skin on one apple on accident, but i kind of liked the way it turned out)
put them in a big pot on the stove

add 1 and a half cups of water

add 1 cup of organic raw sugar (kind of naughty, but seriously, yummy, if you just can't do it, put a bit of honey in instead)

squeeze 2 lemons' juices into the pot

add a tiny tiny pinch of salt

add a grande pinch of cinnamon (an herbalist i know said that my daughter should be eating cinnamon everyday, so here is the way how)

put the stove on medium high, stir and mush every once in a while.

when most of the mix looks "applesaucy", but there are still a few chunks, turn off stove.

enjoy! so yummy. put it in mason jars and share. simple and sweet gift. attach the recipe so the gift can continue.
