This is such an easy thing to make. I am sure it would be even easier if you had an apple corer, but I don’t actually know that. I have made the original version I picked up here once before and it was excellent. However since I was out of both nutmeg and brown sugar (wtf?) I modified a bit and it was equally delicious. It just goes to show how flexible this is.
I picked up a 3lb bag of apples at the farmers market for $5 and this recipe used half of that to make 2 cups worth. It is great on oatmeal, vanilla ice cream or plain.. you know.. if you are recovering from a stomach bug.
(makes 2 cups)
1.5 lbs of apples (or about 8 medium), peeled, cored and roughly chopped
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon honey
zest of one orange (organic if you can get it)
Preheat oven to 400F while you prep the apples. Combine it all in a large Dutch oven or casserole. Bake for 45minutes to an hour or until nice and mushy. When you pull it out give it a good whipping\mushing with a wooden spoon or spatula.[/print_this]
