home-made applesauce is so yummmmm....and the smell? simply autumn and wonderful!

we used the jonathan apples from Riley's Farm to make it. a lot of recipes said not to use the more tart apples for applesauce, but i loved how ours turned out (and so do my boys)

Bodie was very much into helping...can you tell? And this all must be done with a fussy baby attached to you...also very important...

so i didnt really follow a recipe, but here is what i did:

Barnes Applesauce
about 9 or 10 apples - medium sized - peeled (not perfectly since the skin has so much wonderful fiber goodness) and cored and chopped (not too finely)
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

that's it! i just put it all in the dutch oven...brought to a boil and then simmered and covered for about 45 minutes. After that i threw it all in the food processor and then canned it.

we still have some apples left and i intend to do some type of cobbler with them...we'll see how much energy i actually have tonight if that is gunna happen or not!

if any of you have any cobbler recipes you love, please share!
