This is a pretty simple recipe, but it always reminds me of fall. Enjoy.
Step 1: Ingredients
For apple sauce I gathered
4 honey crisp apples (for sweeter apples like these, I would recommend using less sugar),
3/4 cup of water (you may need to add more if you cook it down longer),
1/5 cup of white sugar,
1 tablespoon of brown sugar,
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon,
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg.
Step 2: Chopping the Apples
Core, skin, and chop the apples.
Step 3: Combine All Ingredients
Combine all of the ingredients into a sauce pan and heat over medium heat until the apples become soft.
Step 4: Mash and Cook Down
I used a potato masher to mash the apples into a sauce. If you do this at about 20 minutes and stop cooking the apples down, you will have chunks of apples throughout your sauce. I continued to cook down my sauce after mashing so that the apple chunks melted away.
Step 5: Eat, Jar, Enjoy
After letting it cool for a little while, I put it into a mason jar for storage. Hope you enjoy.
