It's apple season, and what should you do if you have an abundant supply of apples? Follow Fresh Tart's lead and make applesauce!
I hated applesauce as a kid. (I realize how many blog posts I begin by mentioning a food I hated as a kid. I do it to reassure you, and myself, that picky children often become great cooks and eaters. So hang in there if you're feeding the impossible.)
I hated its grainy, watery texture. I hated its unappetizing pinky-grey color.
I hated that it didn't taste like apple pie, which I loved.
And then I made homemade applesauce and like many things homemade, it blew my mind a little bit. Smooth and almost creamy, thick and not-too sweet, scented with cinnamon and tasting fully of apples. Like apple pie, in fact, warm and comforting. Yes.
