Homemade Applesauce

This past fall I got the idea to make homemade applesauce for my husband because he loves applesauce. I had never made it before, nor had it in recent memory. I really don't know how they sell the bottled stuff after eating this. First of all my husband floated through the house by his nose when he came home from work and immediately appeared in the kitchen to find out what I was making. Second, this is exceedingly easy and pretty quick too. Third, it just tastes darn good, and I don't even like apples! I am putting this recipe in my blog today because I am going to make it tomorrow when I make porkchops. I have been looking forward to having porkchops all week but since I have been fighting the cooties (I am a drama queen I am going to milk these cooties for all they are worth!) I haven't felt like eating or cooking. I am going to serve the porkchops with the applesauce and the brown rice pilaf that I recently blogged. I think all the flavors will combine really well. Anyways, on to the recipe. I found it at as I do many of my recipes.

2 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 McIntosh apples, cored, peeled and chopped
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons water
1/4 cup sugar

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until apples become very tender, about 30 minutes. Applesauce may be left lumpy or mashed with a fork to become smoother

My goodness, this certainly does sound good. Yum, Yum. It is amazing to me to see my former picky eater trying so many different things.
