This week has been so crazy. trying to fit in long shifts at work, life and of course the Living Yoga Challenge. But just while I have 10 minutes to spare, I just wanted to share with you all quickly a really simple Homemade Apple Sauce recipe that I made this weekend.
Winter ’tis the season for apples, and boy do we have our fair share of them! We honestly can’t finish them each week, before our next box of fruit and veg come the following week. I think it might just be the cooler weather, we just don’t crave fruits like we normally do in the warmer months. But what I do crave is baked goods! And what’s a good ingredient to have on hand for baked goods? Apple sauce!
It’s honestly so simple to make yourself as well. No need to go out and buy jars of the stuff, when you can make your own in less then half an hour! It also lasts up to about a week in the fridge, just remember to pop a label on it so you remember when you made it!
