Test Kitchen #45 ~ A Bonus Recipe Reblogged ~ Applesauce

Last week my niece was pinning some apple sauce recipes and it reminded me of this bonus recipe I had shared last year. It’s so good and since it’s apple season I thought I’d share it again.

Plus it has the added bonus of breaking the silence that has been around here lately. Life got a little frantic lately and while I don’t look for much to slow down now that the holidays are upon us, I do still want to keep up with the blogging. (May I just say that part of the reason it has been so very crazy is that 4 babies have been born into our church since September? So it’s been busy but full of sweetness!) I miss the blog hopping, reading really great stuff and finding some great recipes. Just got to make time for it all.

But such is life for everyone so let’s move on to the apple sauce recipe. I originally found this one off the label of a Juicy Juice bottle. Super easy and, besides tasting good, will make your house smell o-mazing.

What you’ll need:
6 baking apples chopped into pieces (best apples recommended for baking are Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, and the Pink Lady)
1 1/2 cups apple juice
1/2 cup dried cranberries 
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon 
What you’ll do:
Combine all ingredients into a large pot. 
Cook on high heat for about 30 minutes or until your apples are tender.

A couple of things to note:
I don’t like super chunky apples sauce so I used my potato masher to break down the larger apple pieces. Also, I don’t exactly measure out my cranberries~I just add what looks like a good cranberry to apple ratio. And as long as I am admitting that I don’t follow directions exactly my brown sugar wasn’t exactly packed down and if measured out was probably a little closer to 3/4 a cup.
