Apples, apple sauce, apple pies, apple cider – yeah Apples truly are a fruit that represents fall the changing of the leaves, sweater season and hot evening drinks of cocoa and cider.

Well, I couldn’t think of something more traditional than apple sauce, here is a recipe that might inspire you to serve this right next to the cranberries at your Thanksgiving table.  Also, you may want to try this recipe which makes use of extra pumpkin.

This recipe, comes courtesy of FoodNetwork and Gale Gand.


  • 6 apples, McIntosh preferred
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, optional


Peel and core apples and cut into quarters. Place them in an enamel sauce pan with the water and lemon juice then bring to a boil then turn the heat down slightly and simmer 30 minutes to break them down and get them to thicken. Take off the heat and stir in the sugar and cinnamon, if using.

Total Time:
45 min
15 min
30 min
4 servings
Just a side note to those of you who do NOT like to ADD sugar or cannot use sugar, Stevia is a great alternative, find it here.
Also, you might like to add nutmeg in addition to the cinnamon above listed in the recipe the 2 pair very well together.
Take Care
