Easy Homemade Applesauce (really!)

During one of my recent trips to a local grocery store (with awesome produce and prices!) I picked up a bag of apples. My family is more of a Granny Smith eating family. So when I saw these Red Delicious apples I knew I could make some applesauce!

The kids love to eat it just like this. But I enjoy it with my morning oatmeal. And maybe a little vanilla ice cream after dinner!! Anyway, here is the super easy recipe.

9 or 10 apples (any variety you like)
peeled (or if you like the skin, by all means leave it!) and cut up into small pieces
1 cup of water

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1 or 2 tsps of cinnamon

pour water over chopped apples, dump in brown sugar and cinnamon. Bring to a boil for a few mins and then let simmer for 10-15 mins and voila! Yummy Applesauce!
*Now we leave ours "chunky" because we like it that way. If you like yours more like jar applesauce, just mash it with a potato masher or your beaters! :)

You really are Miss Thrifty lately. I love the idea of making it and seriously, ice cream? I had no idea. That sounds awesome.
