Clean Eating Homemade Apple Sauce

1

When I was pregnant, I developed quite a sweet tooth. I thought that maybe this sweet tooth would disappear once Henry arrived, however it hasn’t decided to pack its bags just yet. I’ve been trying to steer my food choices to healthy fruits and veggies but with a huge bag of Halloween candy mocking me, I am finding it hard to say no to this temptation. 

In my quest for healthy food, I decided to make a few jars of this incredibly simple 2-ingredient apple sauce — of those 2 ingredients, neither are sugar! This, to me, is a win-win to start the day! Of course, you can always mix in a little sugar, top with cinnamon or however you would like once you spoon it out – I’m trying to avoid that!

Ingredients
  1. Apples - as many and whatever kind you like!
  2. 2 cinnamon sticks
  3. Water (amount varies)
  4. Sugar (optional)
  5. Honey (optional)
Instructions
  1. Core and chop apples - peeling is optional! Leave the skin on for a more rustic apple sauce with more flavor.
  2. Place the apples and cinnamon sticks in a pot and add about 1/4 inch of water to the bottom of the pot. Cover and cook on medium heat until the water starts bubbling. If the water dries out, add 2 tablespoons more at a time and stir periodically.
  3. Once the water bubbles, turn the heat down and let them cook until very soft.
  4. Remove cinnamon sticks. If you prefer chunky sauce, mash it with a potato masher! If you prefer smooth sauce transfer it to a blender or use an immersion blender to blend until smooth.
  5. Give it a taste and sweeten it with honey or sugar if you want.
  6. Store it in the refrigerator or can it.
