music: “Boy” by Ra Ra Ra Riot
Things have been so hectic for me lately. With the end of the semester looming and then Thanksgiving, I haven’t been able to really do anything I wanted. In fact, I am at school right now preparing for a presentation I have to give on Whole Foods later tonight. So I thought, a quick simple recipe, which is relatively quick and simple, but produces something ridiculously tasty!
4 pounds apples, peeled and cored
4 strips of lemon peel
1-2 cinnamon sticks
1 cup water
Core and quarter your apples
Put all of the ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil
Once boiling, reduce it to a simmer and cover the pot.
Cook for approximately 30 minutes, or until apples are quite soft.
Using a pair of tongs remove apple skins, lemon peels, and cinnamon sticks
Let cool slightly then mash or puree depending on whether you like a rustic, chunky applesauce or a smoother applesauce
