Taste of Tuesday - Homemade applesauce

If you read last weeks Weekend Update, you'd see we had a Fall day on Sunday, Corn mazes and apple picking. We picked a good amount of apples and have eaten some throughout this past week. One of my mom's favorite things to bake with are apples, but we haven't gotten around to making anything dessert like yet. Last night we had pork for dinner, and along with that usually have applesauce. We like to buy the chunky applesauce. I find the plain doesn't really have any flavor or depth to it. Because we had alot of apples left my mom decided to make her own. it's always so so good. It's amazing how many store bought foods/desserts you can actually make, you just need to find a recipe! This homemade stuff is my absolutely favorite. Mostly because it's made fresh and probably doesn't have as much sugar or whatever else the store bought kind has in it. We made a good amount and it was all gone by the end of dinner. I'm sure you could find many recipes online but this one is from my mom's personal cookbook
