I’m a little obsessed with apple season.. there’s just so many opportunities.
I visited the Applewood Farm & Winery in Stoufville last week and got to pick an abundance of McIntosh apples, the best for this recipe. This recipe is not only simple but will leave your house smelling like a little piece of heaven.
I enjoy this apple sauce warm, although chilled on some pork is also delightful.

Cinnamon Apple Sauce
makes about 2 mason jars
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 cup low acid apple juice
12 small apples (cut into 1″ cubes)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1. Peel & cut your apples. Set aside.
2. Using the pot you will be cooking your apple sauce in, add your water & brown sugar. Dissolve the brown sugar (3-5 min).
3. After you’ve dissolved your brown sugar, add the rest of the ingredients. Give it a good stir.
4. Let it simmer over medium heat for about 30 min. Stir occasionally. You’ll notice your apples will slowly cook down so make sure the liquid attempts to cover most of your mixture.
5. Time to get your desired texture: either put it in a blender or mash it down with a fork to keep it a lil chunky.
Enjoy with pork, on top of apple pie.. so many options.
