Recipe: Apple Sauce

I wish I was one of those moms who made all her baby's food from scratch and only fed her super duper healthy stuff, but sadly I am not [yes, frown upon me now]..  I really do admire those moms who do.  And my number one excuse that probably doesn't really count is that we have gone through such big transitions lately that I haven't even wanted to cook.  However, things are changing and I want to cook again [YEAY].

I am actually really excited to get back to my house because I have a cookbook waiting for me dedicated to making fun food creations.  So, since I plan on spending a nice relaxing week I have decided to make something simple but yummy to her..... Apple Sauce.  Now lets make this apple, saucy.

Ingredients:
- 2 apples
- 1/4 cup of water
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- pinch of cinnamon [optional]

Wash, peel, core, and chop the apples up.  Yup this is the hardest part of the process.
 
Place all the ingredients minus the cinnamon in a saucepan on the stove covered.  Stir it ever so often and after about 15 minutes and a nice aroma of apples they will get tender and mushy.

Then use a mixer, food processor, or even a potato masher to get it mushy.  Sprinkle with some cinnamon and there you have it.  I don't really like applesauce but it was pretty good.  After nap time, Cindy had some and she loved it.  I can't wait to try to make some with green apples for my hubby to see if he will like it as much as her. 
 
So, if you ever wanted to make  baby food and weren't sure, try this because it's easy.  I know they have those special machine thingy that makes it so much simpler than this old school way but maybe for our next baby I will invest in one.

  1. Yummy! I'll have to try it. And by the way, those baby food making machines aren't what they're all cracked up to be. I have one and I use it more for defrosting food.
