Homemade Applesauce

From Kermit’s Kitchen

Serves 4 to 6

Homemade applesauce is an easy to make special treat.  Recipe may be doubled.

Ingredients:

2 Granny Smith apples
Tablespoon water
2 Tablespoons sugar (may need more, depending on the ripeness of the apples)
2 teaspoons Kermit’s Key Lime Syrup

Preparation:

Peel and core apples.  Cut into uniform slices
In medium sized saucepan, add water and apple slices
Heat pan on high until the apples begin to sizzle, then turn burner to low and cover.
After about 20 minutes, stir the apples to insure uniform doneness
When the apples are cooked (they will mash easily), add sugar and syrup.|
Mix thoroughly

Note: Apples will vary in ripeness and in their water content.  Less ripe apples may require more water when cooking.  They may also require more sugar.

Serving Suggestions:

Serve warm or chilled.  Homemade applesauce is a great side dish with ham or pork.  As a dessert, it is terrific all by itself or as a topping for vanilla ice cream.
