Apple Sauce - With a Cinnamon Stick and Ramekin

Wooo apple sauce!

What?

You aren’t excited about apple sauce?

Well I guess if you’ve only had the jarred kind why would you be?

The jarred stuff isn’t very exciting, and sort of tastes like baby food.  But homemade applesauce is SO much better than store bought apple sauce (no surprises there, right?) and is pretty delicious stuff.  AND it’s unbelievably easy to make.

(If you prefer to make this recipe in the crockpot instead of on the stove, see my Crockpot Applesauce recipe).

Chopped Apples in a Saucepan

I used Pink Lady apples because I love their flavor.  They are sort of tart and sweet at the same time, but you can use whatever apple you like.
