How to Make Easy Homemade Applesauce
Apparently it is Johnny Appleseeds Birthday. Who knew? Right! Well, if you have a kindergartener as I do, then you probably know that. Tyler came home with a unique homework assignment tonight to make homemade applesauce. The recipe was quick, easy and kid friendly - plus we had a blast making it together.
Here is how it went tonight. We took four apples, and I peeled and cut them for Tyler.
Then we added 1/4 cup of water, 3 Tablespoons of brown sugar, 1/2 of a lemon and a dash of cinnamon.
We covered the bowl with a plate and microwaved for 10 minutes. It took a little longer in my microwave since I have not used it in 3 year years.
Then Tyler went to town smashing the apples until they turned into applesauce. (This was the best part!)
Viola! Applesauce in less than 20 minutes! Happy Birthday Johnny Appleseed, and I give Mommy & Tyler an A+ on this kindergarten homework assignment. What about you?
