Homemade Apple Sauce

I've been wanting a healthy sweet snack and since apples are pretty cheap right now about 75 cents a pound I decided to make some apple sauce. Turns out is is very easy!!

What you need--
A large pot
1 cup of water
5lbs of apples--old apples that are about to go bad work great. For me I got those pretty cheap!
Cinnamon to taste

I peeled the apples and cored them. Since I have an apple slicer (from the dollar tree) I didn't have to do any more work but Abby really wanted to help so I let her cut up the apples with a butter knife. Since we were using older apples they were really easy for her to cut in half with the butter knife. She loved it.

We threw them all in a pot with one cup of water (you can use apple juice, cider, or water), some cinnamon and put it on the stove on low heat for 25 minutes. I covered the pot with a lid and stirred it maybe 3 times during the 25 minutes. Right at 25 minutes when I stirred it I could tell the apples were really soft and some were already starting to break just from me stirring...perfect!

I pulled them out and used my blender to mash them up.

 Our photographer might need to keep his day job! But that was it! We tried it and it tastes great, doesn't need any sugar at all.
