Q: How do you know that an elephant has been in your refrigerator?
A: There are footprints in the applesauce
1/4 cup water
Honey or maple syrup
Using a vegetable peeler, remove the apple skins.
Cut the apples into pieces. Throw away the seeds and the core.
Place the apples in a saucepan with 1/4 cup of water. Cook for about 15 minutes or until the apples are soft enough to mash with a potato masher.
Remove the pot from the heat. Mash the apples.
Leave the applesauce as it is, or sweeten to taste with a little honey or maple syrup and cinnamon. Serve warm or cold.
