And, of course, they are no longer suitable for eating after they've had bites taken out of them (my girls are so picky - wonder where they get that from). So, instead of composting them or throwing them out (I hate waste), I save them and when I've saved enough... It's applesauce time!
Step 2: Place in steamer and sprinkle with cinnamon,
Cover and let steam for 10-15 minutes until fork tender.
Step 3: Set aside to cool for a few minutes.
Add apples to food processor with about 1T of the steaming water
For chunky enthusiasts: Pulse until desired consistency is reached.
Oh So Smooth: Turn it on and let it go for about a minute
mmmmm..... applesauce and homemade bread
Secretly gloat that you have gotten them to eat the apples after all
