Another part of my "uses for apples" series. Nothing is better than homemade applesauce!
1 lb of apples (Macintosh taste best for this), peeled and quartered
1/2 stick of butter
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 cup sugar
On stovetop in skillet, melt butter. Add appleslices and turn to low and cover. Allow the fruit to reduce and become very soft, stirring occasionally. Add in sugar and cinnamon and stir. The fruit juices will thicken slightly. Serve warm.
ETA: I found that it actually tastes just as good, if not better, without the butter and with half the sugar and triple the apples. I also add a dash of nutmeg, allspice, and clove.
