Author Notes: One of my favorite fall activities is apple picking and creating delicious recipes with the bounty I have picked throughout September and October. I have made a few different applesauce recipes in the past but thought I would try something a little different this year. I decided to add just a bit of honey in with the apples. The flavor really comes through without detracting from the delicious taste of the apples. This recipe yields a small quantity but it can be easily doubled or tripled. —thepuffin
Makes: about 1 1/2 cups
apples (I used Golden Delicious)
teaspoons ground cloves
- Peel and core the apples and slice them into bite sized chunks.
- Place the apple chunks in a pot along with the water, cinnamon, and ground cloves. Turn the heat to medium and cover the pot.
- Cook until the apples soften and mash with the back of a spoon.
- Pour in the honey and cook for about 10 minutes longer to allow the flavors to meld together.
