Hi Friends! I’m so excited about todays blogpost; I have a guest on today. And this special guest is my Mama- this is her first time guest posting so be sure to make her welcome and show some love and leave a comment.
Before she takes over, I want to add that my mom is a teacher and has been for 30 years. And today she is sharing a tasty recipe that she makes with her class; they are preschoolers and love helping with this recipe as well as eating it. So not only is this recipe delicious and great for adults – kids love it too! So this is a great way to get kids involved in the kitchen.
So with that being said My mom is going to takeover from here- Enjoy!
Hi, I’m Ebonee’s Mom and I’m here to share my Applesauce/Preserves recipe. It’s simple and fun!
I prepare this recipe as an activity with my class when we are talking about Apples.
Here are the instructions:
12 Gala Apples- washed and cut with an apple core slicer/divider.
1 lemon squeezed over the apples- I prepare the apples the night before and let the lemon juice soak the apples overnight.
I bring my crockpot to work with me so that the children can participate and smell the aroma in the classroom. We then put the apples in the crockpot on low and then pour just enough water to cover the apples.
I add 3/4 of a cup to 1 cup of sugar- depending on your sweetness preference. I do less sugar for the children because they are already full of energy- LOL.
Let the ingredients simmer on low to cook the apples down. Once the apples are soft, I add a tablespoon of cinnamon and let it simmer a few minutes more. I choose
I like the apples to be a little bit lumpy like a preserve, so the children can have the option to eat on a biscuit or if they want applesauce they can mush the apples with their spoon.
This recipe can be served hot or cold and it is not overly sweet and the ingredients are very simple. The sweetness is just right. We like it on ice cream, biscuits or even by itself.
Here are the ingredients listed:
12 Gala apples
3/4 to 1 cup sugar
enough water to cover the apples
1 tablespoon of cinnamon- add more cinnamon if you’re a cinnamon lover.
I hope that you enjoy and have fun!
