Hasta La Vista, Motts

I had intended to make an apple crisp.

Nope. Never happened.

Visions of apple crisp then turned to visions of applesauce. Especially when I stumbled upon this recipe over at Bread & Honey.

I got out the apples.

Washed and peeled them.

Cored and sliced.

Threw the apples in a crockpot with some sugar, a little cinnamon, and a splash of water.

Turned it on low, sat back and savored the aroma that was soon wafting through my casa.

About six hours later I had homemade applesauce.

But really people, referring to this as simply "applesauce" is a bit insulting. It's more like apple pie in a jar.

I imagine it spooned over ice cream with a drizzle of caramel sauce. Or served warm with some crushed gingersnaps sprinkled on top. Or maybe even along side some whole wheat oat muffins.

But hey. A plain bowlful isn't bad either.

Hasta la vista, Motts. You are no longer needed here.
