My kids love applesauce and eat it with plain, whole milk yogurt for breakfast quite a bit. This slow-cooked applesauce is so simple to make, exponentially better than anything you can get in a jar and is an even bigger treat when its warm. It’s best to use apple cider to cook the apples but in a pinch I’ve used water as well. Please don’t use an apple that will hold it’s shape like a Granny Smith, Honeycrisp or Cortland. You’ll want something that will soften and collapse like McIntosh, Macoun or Jonagold. If you’re ouT picking apples and are not sure what’s best, just ask the farmer and they’ll point you in the right direction. There are so many local names that may not be familiar but could work very well here. If you prefer your applesauce with a little texture cook the mixture on the shorter side. I normally make this in a slow cooker but if you don’t have one use a Dutch oven and bake the apple mixture in the oven at 300 for about 2-3 hours.
