Poke Chops and Appleshaush

I was going to make muffins, but we didn't have applesauce.
We always have applesauce, but when I try to make muffins that include applesauce as one of the ingredients, we don't have any. So, rather than figuring out a way to leave out the applesauce and keep the muffins from being super dry, I just decided to make applesauce. It was way easier than I thought it'd be!
I found this recipe online - I just googled an applesauce recipe for Granny Smith apples, because that's what I had. I've used this site before, so..I picked it. In case you wanted to know the whole thought process behind the recipe.

Basically, you peel and cut up x amount of apples, depending on how much applesauce you want to make. Then you toss the apples in a pot with lemon juice, cinnamon sticks, and sugar, and let it simmer for about 30 minutes. Once they are soft, you mash them up. You can eat it hot, or chill it in the fridge or freezer. My family's tradition is to eat frozen applesauce, but I actually like it better hot.

Enjoy! Or, if you have leftovers, maybe you can make these muffins.


P.S. If you're going to make applesauce, or if you didn't get the title, you should really watch this clip.
