When life give you apples...make applesauce!

IMG_9580Hooray! It's apple season! What do you do when you have an overabundance (is that possible??) of this glorious fruit? Well, make applesauce! Here is a recipe for a super simple, super healthy and super delicious treat that is jam packed with fiber and vitamin C to help keep you and your peeps happy and strong all fall long. Enjoy!

Ingredients: - 5 organic apples (I choose 3 Fuji & 2 Granny Smith - click HERE for some apple facts to help you choose!) - 3/4 cup water - 1 Tablespoon cinnamon - 1-2 cinnamon sticks - 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg - 1/4 teaspoon salt - juice of 1 lemon - lemon zest of 1 lemon Directions: 1. Peel and core apples. 2. Dice apples into small, 1 inch (or so) cubes. 3. Add all ingredients to a pot, turn on high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Let simmer for 45 minutes or so ~ stirring here and there just to make sure apples are getting equal parts love from the heat and that your spices are all mixing together effectively. FullSizeRender-254. Once apples are soft, remove pot from heat. Carefully pull out cinnamon stick(s) and mash with fork. FullSizeRender-245. Enjoy your applesauce all by itself...super satisfying and naturally sweet! For some added protein, serve warm with fresh fruit and nuts. FullSizeRender-23
