Let’s be honest, Autumn brings many great things, and one of those is most definitely the food. Ever since I was little my mom would enlist our help with coring, chopping, and boiling apples. Then she’d add a bit of magic and serve the yummiest warm applesauce, leaving us wondering if that old “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” adage included cinnamon-sugary applesauce. (I mean, probably not… #sadface)
This time my mom wasn’t here to make it when my brothers and I were craving it, so we looked up a recipe, which turned out to be pretty darn delicious too. We were lucky to use fresh outta the Yakima orchard apples from our Grandma!
Fun fact: my 14 year old brother, Wyatt, is nicknamed Wapyo, and because he did most of the work this time around, we are calling this batch “Wapplesauce”.
