I hope everyone had a wonderful Columbus Day weekend! Remember the 16 pounds of apples that I picked a few weekends ago? Well, it was time to start putting them to good use, so I decided to make some Homemade Applesauce. I like to keep my applesauce simple and showcase the flavors of the apples, so I use apples that are specifically good for sauce, like McIntosh or Macoun. I love to eat my applesauce plain or add it to various foods, like French toast.
As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program, I received Bauducco® Panettone with raisins and with chocolate chips. I decided to use the panettone with chocolate chips to make some French toast for breakfast this past weekend. I topped this delicious French toast with some applesauce and maple syrup. It was scrumptious! Enjoy!
- 12 apples, McIntosh or Macoun, peeled and sliced
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/3 cup water
- Mason jars, 1 quart and 1 pint, sterilized
- In a large mixing bowl, combine apples, sugar, and cinnamon.
- In a large stock pot, place water on the bottom and add the apples. Cook on low until the apples become soft, stirring occasionally.
