Grandma Betty's Applesauce

Grandma Betty is the sweetest, shortest, most pleasant woman. Once she whipped up at batch of this homemade applesauce in the hills of Missouri and it was so good I demanded she write down the recipe. Boy am I glad she did as it has become a staple in our home each Fall.

5 or 6 medium Golden Delicious Apples, peeled and chopped
1 cup of water

Bring to a boil, cover and boil gently for 10 minutes or until apples are soft.
Remove from heat and mash those apples.
I have used a potato masher for chunky applesauce or put it in my blender for smooth applesauce.
Than add 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon in the pan, of course.
Stir and stir and stir.
Return to heat and bring to a boil. Stir and then turn off the burner.
Try not to burn yourself because you can't wait until it cools.
p.s. your house will smell awesome!

I've doubled, tripled and even quadrupled this recipe! Yummy.
p.s.s. serve it with dinner and pork chops or serve it at breakfast with french toast and sausage. mmmmm.
