Really Simple Applesauce
Homemade applesauce is ridiculously easy to make, and it's tastier and healthier than anything from a jar. If you start with good apples, your sauce will need nothing more than a pinch of salt. This applesauce is great warm or cold.
Use different apple varieties for a mix of sweet and tart flavor with firm and soft textures. I'm partial to Jona Golds, Fujis, and Golden Delicious. You can peel your apples for a smoother texture, but I prefer the added flavor they bring.
