We don’t eat a lot of applesauce around these parts.

However, one of my favorite things when I was a kid was when my mom would make pork chops and applesauce.

Raise your hand if you just read “pork chops and applesauce” in Peter from The Brady Bunch’s voice.

Keep your hand up if you used to lay on the floor, complaining to your mom that you were starving to death, while watching The Brady Bunch every day.

Jump up and down if dinner used to hit the table like clockwork when Little House On The Prairie came on.

No?

Well. At least I’ve gotten my work out in for today.

Anyway, back to the applesauce. That is why you’re here, right?

Here we go:

Core and peel your favorite apples. I used organic cameos. You could even mix and match if you like to live on the wild side.

I used a three lb bag, but will probably triple it next time.

Chop the apples into chunks, and cover them with cinnamon.

Do not add anything. Not even water. No sugar, no apple juice. Nothing.

Cover, and cook on low for 6 hours.

Be patient! Do not open the lid until your 6 hours is up. Then, open the lid, and inhale the yummy goodness.

Then take a potato masher and stir everything together.

Voila!

I almost didn’t post this because it was so darn easy. But, I didn’t want to be held responsible for your salvation, because I’m sure not making homemade cinnamon applesauce is a sin.

I’ll leave it at that.

Love you all more than my luggage.
