There’s something about Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce that makes even grownups love it and take a second serving. Especially when it’s served alongside some delicious Garlic Thyme Pork Chops or maybe a roasted Peppered Pork Loin.
It’s so simple to make, with just 4 ingredients, yet so delicious. Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce can be served warm or cold. I always use a few green apples (Granny Smith or Pippin), but if I happen to have some red apples, such as a crisp Pink Lady apple, I’ll add them in also.
Next time you cook pork for dinner, make some Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce to go along with it.
- 4-5 large crisp apples (granny smith or pippin are great choices)
- ¼ cup water
- ¼ cup sugar
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- ½ tsp cinnamon (to sprinkle on top before serving)
- Wash, peel, core, and slice apples.
- Add water, sugar, cinnamon sticks, and sliced apples to med sauce pan over med/high heat.
- Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Cover pot and simmer until apples are tender (approx 15 minutes).
- Drain any excess liquid (if there is any). Remove cinnamon sticks.
- Mash with potato masher until desired consistency (I like some chunks left in mine, but feel free to make it smoother).
- Sprinkle with additional cinnamon.
Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce is perfect with any pork dish!
