Raw Applesauce

applesauce

This is a super-easy raw gala applesauce. It's a little more gritty than the cooked kind, but to me, so worth eating because it's fresh and so healthy!

Ingredients:

6 gala apples (or other sweet apple) with peels in tact
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon

Directions:

Cut apples into chunks...

...and process ingredients in a food processor until smooth...

This took us about ten minutes to make and resulted in a beautiful deep rust-colored sauce...

The apples provided plenty of sweetness and I quite literally could not stop eating it. Enjoy!

  1. There's nothing I like more than a good, raw applesauce. Since you used your food processor, I have a question for you. It sounds silly, but I'm just trying to make sure that my kitchen is properly outfitted as I make a lifelong transition to eating whole foods. What exactly is a food processor? How many/what kind of blades should it have? What should I look for when buying one? Any advice would be appreciated!

    As for tomorrow, I'll try this recipe for breakfast with my BlendTec blender. That will hopefully be good enough.
