Yid.Dish: Homemade Applesauce

It’s latke season, which also means it’s time to buy applesauce, dig out the applesauce you made in the fall, or make some from scratch now. This simple recipe fills up the house with a delicious aroma of cinnamon, and can easily be frozen in plastic or glass freezer containers to enjoy throughout the winter. Add a bit to your buttery sweet potato latkes, parsnip carrot latkes, or spicy potato latkes; or have some plain as a snack – it’s delicious with granola or walnuts mixed it!

To make applesauce: Core apples, and peel if you prefer sauce without skins. Cut apples into quarters, and fill as many as you’d like into a pot. Add water – you should add half the amount of water as apples. Simmer until cooked down to your liking. Add cinnamon and clove to taste. Delicious hot or cold!
