A very apple weekend

The weekend started with apple pie and ended with apple sauce, and in between, we had some raw apples.
I made the pie on Friday, after Roland's son asked me to make him pie and there they were, two hours later, two mini pies that the boy ate in 24 hours. We don't eat pie, but we used some of the apples to make cooked apples with coconut and rum and they turned out pretty good.
I will only share the applesauce recipe with you, since I don't want to tempt you into trying pie, but oh well, here is the picture anyways.


Applesauce is a whole different story, since you make at least 4 servings from just two medium apples and it gives so much satisfaction for the calories.


Here is how to make 4 servings of applesauce. You need:

2 medium apples
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp butter

Place the two apples(don't peel them) in a steamer and steam for 15 minutes. Take out, let them cool off a bit and scoop out the flesh into a blender or chopper. Discard the skin and seeds, and any hard parts. Blend the apple flesh until it's smooth. Over medium heat cook that with the butter and cinnamon for about 5-6 minutes or until you feel the warm caramel smell. Don't forget to stir constantly.

You could use the applesauce as a part of your breakfast, or to flavor yogurt. If you added some chili pepper it could turn into a great sauce for cooked meat, it's your call how to use it, so please let me know.

Wishing you a great Monday and a happy start of the week!
