Do you like applesauce? Store bought versions can contain high amounts of sugars and chemicals, not to mention cost a bundle. Here’s another question: do you ever find yourself with apples that go bad before you are able to consume them? Perhaps you can sense my train of thought, here: I recommend making your own applesauce! You can use up apples before they go bad, control the ingredients, and save money in the process.
This particular applesauce is a baked version that is even easier than my previous experiences of stove top preparation. I also added ginger and cinnamon as added flavor to make it even more interesting.
I brought my batch to a party to share. Otherwise, I would have frozen individual servings for later consumption.
