Ina Garten has an easy recipe for all those apples you’ve just picked – SheKnows
There is something so heartwarming about fall food. It’s full of those warm, nutty, spicy flavors that we just can’t resist. If there’s anyone we trust when it comes to fall cooking, it’s the goddess herself, Ina Garten. She has a wide range of recipes that are perfect for this cold season like her pumpkin mousse, spicy apple cider and âtatinâ apple cake. Well, she just shared how she enjoys making a homemade version of a store-bought classic, Applesauce. If you have little kids who love to snack or are planning on going apple picking as a family this fall, definitely read on to learn her recipe and her secrets to making the perfect homemade version.
To make Garten applesauce, you will need three pounds of Granny Smith apples and three pounds of sweet red apples that you have on hand. Garten says that using oranges and lemons not only add extra flavor but also keep all those apples from turning brown. So you will also need some of them. To achieve that sweet and spicy fall flavor, Garten adds brown sugar, cinnamon and allspice to his delicious blend. Talk about a fantastic combination. She also shared a special tip on how to make applesauce pink; just add a few red apple peels to the mixture and take them out after the apples are baked. This recipe will make two and a half liters of applesauce, so it’s a great recipe to serve at your next fall gathering.
Overall, if you’re in the mood for the holiday season or are going to be apple picking soon, this applesauce recipe would be a great cooking activity to do with the kids. We have a feeling that they will enjoy helping you prepare it as much as eating it.
