Sugar Free Cinnamon Applesauce Recipe
recipe by adorkablerecipes.blogspot.com
Makes about 7 cups
10-12 medium apples (Ida Red are perfect)
2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups water
Peel and core apples. Cut into quarters (or smaller for a faster cooking time.) Add to a 5 or 6 quart pot and stir in cinnamon and water. Turn burner to high and bring to a boil. Stir and reduce heat to medium. Stirring occasionally, cook 5-10 minutes. Begin breaking apart apples with a potato masher or spoon. Reduce heat to low and simmer for another 10-20 minutes, stirring now and again, continuing to break down apples. (Secret tip--Using a wire whisk will result in a smoother sauce. Love it.) Cook until your desired consistency is reached.
