There’s something so comforting and soul warming about homemade applesauce. I associate applesauce with being sick, or cold, which isn’t a bad thing. When I was sick was when I would often get undivided attention and love from my mom, she’d bring me apple sauce and ginger ale and I’d be so relieved to be able to eat something. When I’d be cold in the morning (and didn’t feel like eating oatmeal) I’d microwave some apple sauce, stir in lots of cinnamon, and savor it’s sweet warmth with every bite. It’s easy to customize apple sauce to your taste, and this delicious homemade applesauce recipe is so much better for you than what you can buy in the store. Even better bonus, kids love making their own apple sauce!
