A Brooklyn Girl’s Guide to Sunday: Easy Applesauce
Sundays can be weird. They’re the end of the week, the weekend, and the night before another one starts. They’re a time for long afternoon coffees, 5 PM movies, sleeping in, and doing errands. They’re a time to ignore your phone and try to cook food for the week in advance. So welcome to a column about Sundays: what do to, what to eat, how to get your mind and body kickstarted for the week ahead. You’ll find recipes, home remedies, coffee-shop recommendations, Sunday night movie lists, and even a few get-out-of-town cards. This week, we’re starting off with a recipe for applesauce, one of the easiest, best tasting things you can possibly make with little to no effort involved. It lasts all week and when you make it you know exactly what’s in it.
- 6-8 McIntosh Apples
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon Pumpkin Spice
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 cup water
Cut the apples into fourths and put in a pot. Add water, spices, and let simmer for two hours. Stir occasionally. When apples have dissolved, either refrigerate or run through a sieve for a smoother finish. Best eaten with oatmeal.
