i realized i had some apples that were starting to bruise, and there were 5 of them, so i decided to make some homemade applesauce.  it turned out delicious, if i do say so myself.  this is now my go-to recipe.  yuuuummm.


5-6 honeycrisp apples (they are my favorite, but you can use whatever you have)
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp sugar
1/3 cup water (more if you need it but you really don't need much)
the juice of 1/2 orange


peel apples and cut them into bite-sized pieces.  put them into sauce pan over medium-high heat, add 1/3 cup water.  once water is boiling, lower heat to medium, place on lid and steam until apples are soft and slightly mushy.  stir occasionally, adding more water if needed (small amounts at a time).  when apples are soft, remove from heat and add the nutmeg, cinnamon, sugar, and orange juice.  stir and mash all at the same time.  serve warm or chill in refrigerator.

i prefer mine warm and slightly chunky, but you can puree if you want!
