About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Homemade Applesauce

Last week I picked up a bag of apples for 99 cents at Ingles.  There were about 10 large apples in the bag and today I decided to make my first batch of homemade applesauce.  My Mom would make her own applesauce all the time so we grew up on the homemade kind and not Mott's.  It was the best especially when it had just finished cooking and was nice and warm.

Here's the recipe I'm using today, maybe one of these days I'll be able to find Mom's original recipe.

4 med. cooking apples, pared, quartered & cored
1 c. water
1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
Heat apples and water over medium heat to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 to 10 minutes or until tender. Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg; heat to boiling.
