Apples are on Sale...
What to do with the abundance? You can make homemade applesauce? How you ask? Adding a bit of butter to a put, cutting apples into small pieces and adding cinnamon. (Keeping the skin on is a personal preference). Cook at low heat until the apples cook down into a mushy consistence. Stir periodically.
The apples give a delightful scent to the house and require very little babysitting while cooking. You can accomplish other activities in the house while letting them slowly cook.
I had some extra applesauce sitting around and decided to add it into a BANANA BREAD recipe. I substituted applesauce for the bananas and added a 1/2 cup of raisins to soak up the extra moisture. The bread turned out great!
The applesauce loaf of bread is a good way to add fiber into your diet. It is a satisfying snack...add a bit of peanut butter for a more substantial snack or some jelly for a sweet treat.
