Hen came up with this recipe all on his own. We were on our way home from school and the recipe just burst out of him. He told me I absolutely could not forget the recipe, and that we absolutely had to make it with the apples we had in the house. So this evening, that is what we did. He donned his apron, declared himself the chef, and used his papa and I to make this sugary mass of boiled apples come to life. I fully expect there to be a tremendous sugar crash after he eats it.
2 cups water
pinch of salt
1/3 cup sugar
Peel and core the apples. Discard the peel and core. Cut the apples into thin slices.
Put all the ingredients in a pot. Bring to a boil. Turn down the heat and cook the apples, stirring often, until the water is absorbed and the apples are mushy.
Cool and serve. Enjoy!
7:02 A.M. / RECIPE CORRECTION: After tasting the recipe Hen determined the ratio of sugar to apples was off and the result is that the sugar applesauce is too sweet. We are going to try the recipe again tonight but reduce the amount of sugar from a third of a cup to one teaspoon. This post will be updated with those results and any recipe modification after our next taste test.
