Homemade Applesauce:

My grandma used to make the best applesauce ever!
I always loved whenever her and mom would make it
and then freeze it to have all year.
Unfortunately, there was no recipe.
So I went on a hunt looking for a good applesauce recipe
 and this one turned out super yummy and extremely easy.
We all really enjoyed it and I hope you like it as well!

8 cups apples, peeled, cored and diced
1 tblsp. lemon juice
1/2 - 1 cup sugar

Place apples in a large saucepan. Add enough water to just barely cover the apples. Cover and cook over medium-high heat until apples are very tender, stirring occasionally. Place in a blender, or use an immersion blender right in the pan to mash the apples to your preference - smooth or chunky. Add lemon juice and sugar. Taste to see if you need more will depend on the kind of apple you use and how sweet you want it to be. Add more as needed. Cook and stir for another 3-5 minutes on low, to allow the sugar to dissolve and the flavors to blend. You can serve immediately, let cool a little or let cool completely.
