Most food, like pancakes for instance, tastes better homemade. But if you’re in a pinch, instant (and even frozen) varieties will do. Then there are those foods that are so much better homemade that substitutions will never compare. Homemade applesauce is one such food. This applesauce recipe is fool-proof. All you need are:
Peel the apples. Place them in a pressure cooker* with 1/2 cup of water. Sprinkle with cinnamon & brown sugar** to taste. Set manual timer to 3 minutes. When time is up, use fast release to open the pressure cooker. That’s it. Cheaper and better than anything in a supermarket.
*No pressure cooker? No problem. Cook on the stove-top for 45 minutes on medium heat or in a slow-cooker on high for 4-5 hours.
