7 ways to use apples + an easy autumn applesauce recipe

posted in: Holistic Home + Family | 0

Apples are so abundant right now – besides eating them fresh and whole, there are loads of ways to enjoy them. Some of our favorites are:

  1. Sliced with peanut butter for dipping.
  2. Chopped and added to oatmeal with cinnamon and ginger.
  3. Sliced and added to grilled cheddar cheese sandwiches or quesadillas – yes, really! Weird, but good.
  4. Sliced and dipped in yogurt.
  5. Cooked with pork chops and onions, either as a sauce, or chopped.
  6. Added to fruit salad – we like to use yogurt as a healthy dressing.
  7. Slices or chunks drizzled with honey and sprinkled with cinnamon.

You can also make applesauce with them – and who doesn't love applesauce?

Serves: 3
(Recipe can be made in bulk as needed.)

Ingredients:
3 apples
1/4 cup water
1/3 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp of sugar
Optional: nutmeg

1. Chop apples and place in blender. Add water, cinnamon, sugar, and nutmeg. Peel apples if
desired.
2. Serve cold if you’re in a hurry, OR warm up in a saucepan on low heat for about 15 minutes,
stirring in a bit of extra sugar and cinnamon for flavors.

Serve fresh, and the applesauce lasts in a sealed container for up to 4 days.

You can also make bread, muffins, latkes, or donuts with applesauce. Additionally, substitute
apple sauce for oil in a lot of different baked goods, making them more healthy and natural.
