Apple picking and simple applesauce


On Sunday afternoon we went apple-picking. We’ve had so much rain in the last month that it we really hadn’t had a good day to go out and yesterday was just beautiful!

We picked tons of honey crisps (a favorite of mine in the Hudson Valley) and had a ball enjoying the views, checking out the pumpkin patch, and having the kids run races down the rows!IMG_6791(1)

I am a muffin girl, but I try to cater to everyone’s tastes at home. I love making simple a simple applesauce that everyone, even toddlers can enjoy.

Homemade Applesauce

  1. Peel & core apples.
  2. Chop into small cubes and place with other ingredients into a saucepan.
  3. Cook over low heat for a half hour
  4. Mash apples with a masher and serve

You know what they say about apples!  Be well!
