Nothing smells better in the Fall than the aroma of apples cooking in your kitchen. Try making this instead of buying the jarred kind the next time you want apple sauce. It makes a great dessert and also a great topping to your morning oatmeal.
1 lb. of apples, 1/2 cup of water, 1-1/2 oz. of sugar (or more, according to taste), 1/2 a teaspoonful of mixed spice. Pare and core the apples, cut them up, and cook them with the water until quite mashed up, add sugar and spice. Rub the apples through a sieve, re-heat, and serve. Can also be served cold.
