Apple Insanity


Me and my friends from work went apple picking this past weekend at Tougas Farm and I was SO excited to make a whole mess of apple treats.  Arikka and I split a 20 pound bag and I went home with probably 30 apples.  After apple pancakes, I figured I’d use up a bunch for applesauce and then make a soup and baked apples later in the week.  Applesauce seemed simple enough and although I’ve always hated it (more or less because the store bough brands are generally nothing but sugar and processed apple juice) and I’ve recently read that it’s a great substitute for eggs in vegan baking.  It’s actually pretty yummy and makes a really great snack!




About 4 lbs apples (9 or 10) peeled and cored

1 cup water

3 tsp cinnamon + 1 tsp

1 tbsp brown sugar

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/8 tsp nutmeg

  • Pour water, apples, 2 tsp cinnamon, brown sugar, salt and nutmeg in a large saucepan
  • Cover, bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, then cook on  low/medium heat for 30 minutes
  • Remove from heat, crush apples with a potato masher until you reach desired consistency (we like our a little chunkier)
  • Stir in remaining tsp of cinnamon
