Red Hot Applesauce
One of my favorite fall recipes is my Grandma's applesauce. To me it tastes amazing with most apples, but she notes it's best with Golden Delicious apples. I usually use what I have on hand, but the important part is her secret (not-so-secret now) ingredient: red hots. The perfect hint of spicy cinnamon, making this applesauce a perfect festive fall treat.
5 apples of your choice
1/3 cup of water
2 T. of sugar
2 T. of red hots (optional)
1. Peel and chop your apples into 1" chunks or smaller, discarding the core.
2. Put the chopped apples and water into a medium saucepan and simmer until the apples are soft. Make sure to stir often so the apples cook evening and don't burn.
3. Your apples are done when you can poke them with a fork and the fork comes out easily without getting stuck.
4. Remove from the stove and add your sugar and red hots.
6. Using a mixer on low speed (they may splatter) mix the ingredients until smooth and dissolved.
7. Taste the sauce and adjust ingredients to your liking.
8. Once done, transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate until cool.
