Recipe for Simple Cinnamon Applesauce
2 apples (any variety, I used fuji)
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Cut up your apples into smallish pieces. The smaller the pieces, the faster they will soften.
Add them to a small saucepan with water and cook on medium heat. When apples begin to soften, add cinnamon and cook until apples are smashable with the back of a rubber spatula.
Mash up until desired thickness. I kept mine a little chunky. If this isn’t sweet enough for you or your little one, add a teaspoon or so of brown sugar!
