Thanksgiving Tradition

It has become our tradition to make a huge batch of applesauce every year for Thanksgiving. Seth learned from his dad at a young age how to make the most delicious applesauce from scratch, and now he gets to pass along the recipe to Oliver.  We think you should make a batch for your Thanksgiving feast this year, too!

15 Granny Smith Apples
1/4-1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Water
1 Stick Salted Butter
1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract

Peel, core, and dice the apples. Combine apples with the water, butter, and cinnamon sticks and bring to a simmer on low until apples are thoroughly cooked. Mash to your desired consistency. Add the vanilla, lemon juice, ground cinnamon, and brown sugar and stir to combine. Adjust sugar and cinnamon to taste depending on how tart your apples are.
