Guest blog post from Stephanie @ Bargain Bakers
I started writing my Christmas list a couple days ago. Thoughts of Christmas foods and smells started to trickle into my head as I tried to concentrate. I finally gave in and started my morning mission, making my house smell oh so good. Hmmm apple pie maybe? No, that’s really daddy’s favorite, not mine. Oh, chocolate chip cookies! Well, just a couple days after Halloween, chocolate is really the last thing I need, or want to see right now. Something healthier……….hmmmmmm.
Opened the refrigerator. The biggest thing in there was the large bag of apples I had bought through my daughter’s school. Apple sauce!! Smells good, healthy, meets the food and beverage guide lines for daycare. Perfect
So I decided to make my applesauce journey a daycare activity, because we all know that many hands make light work, no matter how big or small the hands are.
We selected 6 big red apples from my stash, 6 Macintosh and 6 Cortland.
I brought the pot to a boil, and then simmered uncovered for just over half an hour. Stir often.
Thanks again Stephanie for an AWESOME recipe! I will be trying this one this week!
