This, reminds me of the GERBER baby puree that I used to feed my son when he was small. He never like it, when he was a baby or even now...lol....always, I'm the one who finished his jar of baby food, yes I admit like baby food! Especially the GERBER pear & banana puree, it's yummy! :P
Initially I made this for baking muffin. Well, actually I just want to use up the apples that no one wants to eat! But, I was busy during school holiday, I don't see the chance of me baking anything now unless night baking again... So this applesauce will probably ended up in my breakfast. I topped it on my cheesy baguette toast, it taste so good. Yeah...seriously, I think I should just keep it for my breakfast ;)
5 Small Apples (or 3 large apples, washed, peeled, core and sliced)
1/2 cup Water
1 Cinnamon Stick
1/4 cup Brown Sugar (optional, can be reduced for less sweet applesauce)
*If making for baby, omit the cinnamon stick and sugar*
