Sweet and Chunky Applesauce

This is a sweet recipe, and is delicious served hot or cold.  It is a versatile dish and would pair well with pork, steak, with cheese as a snack, on its own, or even hot on top of vanilla ice cream!  It was easy to prepare, and quite a tasty dish on a cool night.

Serves 4


4 Large Honeycrisp, Gala or Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored and chopped
2 Tbsp lemon juice
4 Tbsp butter or margarine
1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
1 Tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Apple Pie Spice

1.  Melt margarine in a pan over low-med heat.  Add chopped apples.  Add remaining ingredients.  Continue to stir on low-med heat until apples are soft, about 10-15 minutes.

2.  For a chunky version, use a potato masher and mash up the apples.  For a smoother consistency, place in a food processor and blend until smooth.

Serve warm or cold.  To make applesauce without the spices, leave out the vanilla and apple pie spice, and use half the amount of brown sugar and cinnamon.
