Tasty Tuesday | Recipe Swap and Blog Hop!

How was everyone’s Easter and Passover? Are you totally full? Luckily we don’t have another holiday for a while huh? Well, I hope you enjoyed the holiday weekend nonetheless. We had a pretty informal Easter this year. My mom made brunch at her house and then we went to visit DH’s grandfather for a bit. We were home a little after noon time and that is when G took the longest nap since she was swaddled. A whopping 2.5 hour stretch. DH and I napped as well. 
Any-who, back to cooking! I love this recipe for applesauce and so does G. Try it and it will probably be the only way you make applesauce ever again!

Roasted Applesauce
  1. 1/4 cup of water
  2. 6 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  3. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  4. pinch of coarse salt
  5. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  6. 3 pounds small assorted apples such as Gala, McIntosh, or Fuji (about 10, cored)
  7. 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  8. pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  9. pinch of ground cloves


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine water, sugar, lemon juice, and salt in a 9-by-13 inch baking dish.  
  • Scatter butter pieces over mixture, and top with apples. Roast until apples are very soft, 30 to 40 minutes. 
  • Working in batches, pass apple mixture through a food processor. Strain. Stir in spices. Serve warm at room temperature, or chilled.  Applesauce can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
