4 apples , I used Granny Smith
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons grass fed butter or coconut oil
1) Peel and dice apples ( dice around the core and discard)
2) add everything to a pot and add enough water to almost cover the apples. As the apples cook the will release more liquid.
3) bring to a boil over medium heat then reduced to a simmer. It’s ok to stir now and then.
4) simmer about 45 minutes. The applesauce should have reduced and look well like applesauce !! If you like it a bit chunky then you are done. If not just remove the cinnamon stick and purée it ( be careful it’s really hot )
