Every fall growing up my grandma would make apple sauce and that bowl of delicious, pink fruit would delight my soul. Maybe it was the pink color, maybe it was watching her work her old-fashioned apple peeler but for me it was the ultimate treat. Sometimes the simple things make the most powerful memories. I always thought that the recipe would contain some special ingredients because it tasted better than any other applesauce. I found out the only thing that makes this applesauce pink is the use of McIntosh apples.
- 4 McIntosh apples, cored and chopped
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
In a large saucepan, combine the apples, water, granulated sugar and cinnamon.
Cover and cook 15 – 20 minutes over medium heat until apples are soft.
Allow the apples to cool and mash with a potato masher.
Eat and enjoy the simple pleasures in life.
