Applesauce is a favorite among kids, so I will leave this delicious variation of the old crowd-pleaser to speak for itself.
- 4 large granny-smith apples, peeled and cut according to instructions (see how)
- 1/8 tsp. stevia
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- filtered water
- Place the apples in a saucepan on the stove top over low heat, and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until apples lose their shape.
2. When the apple are very soft and bubbly, turn the heat off, and whisk the apples. This does essentially the same thing as puréeing the applesauce, but leaves a bit more texture. Add the other ingredients and keep whisking until the applesauce reaches you desired texture.
3. Now you need to let the applesauce cool. The natural pectin in the fruit will make the applesauce thicken as it cools. Once it is cool enough, refrigerate and enjoy!
