Apple Picking: Minnesota Harvest

The weather this weekend is AMAZING! I mean, AMAZING!!! 50-60 degrees with beautiful sunshine. It's just amazing. Where can you get this weather in this time of the year?! Let's not think about the global warming and irreversible end-of-the-world climate change or the iceberg melting up North... cough*

It's nice here in Minnesota.

Connell Red and Regents are in season. It's relatively late for apple picking season. The sweeter apples season around late August and September. But there are more things to do than picking apples in August and September I guess.

So, what can you do with a big bag of apples? Make apple sauce!

Angela's Homemade Apple Sauce

Medium size apples x 10
Brown sugar x 4 tbsp
Cinnamon powder x 1/2 tsp
Honey x 1 tbsp
Water/Cider x 1/4 cup

Core and cut the apples into wedges. Heat the apples in a large sauce pan with the water or cider over medium to low heat. I didn't have cider available, but water seems to do the job just fine. Cider could probably give you a sweeter taste. Turn the apples a little bit once a while. The apples should disintegrate and turn into sauce. It should probably take around 20-30 minutes for them to turn into sauce completely. Take it off the heat and add in the brown sugar, cinnamon and honey.

Just a right touch of tart. Healthy and hearty. Homemade and full of Fall spirit.
