Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce


1. If you have a food mill, cut each apple into 4 pieces and place them, seeds and all, into a large pot. If you don't, peel and core apples before cutting into pieces. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until apples become soft, about 10 to 12 minutes.
2. Remove apples from pot and put them directly into food mill. Process into a large bowl. Alternately, place in a large bowl and mash using a potato masher.
3. Taste. For a sweeter applesauce, mix in honey. Stir in lemon juice and cinnamon. Taste again, and add more honey, cinnamon, or lemon juice, if desired. Serve either warm or cold.
What Kids Can Do:
* Cut apples into pieces.
