Nov 21 2023 • 5 mins

Host, Andrew “Kappy” Kaplan and his twins Leo + Ella share a recipe they all cooked with their classes at school. All of the kids helped peel, chop, mix and mash…and most importantly…TASTED!

Pumpkin-Spiced Applesauce

Makes 2-3 cups

2-3 pounds apples, variety of choice (approximately 5-8 apples), peeled, cored and rough chopped

1/4 cup water

3-4 tablespoons brown sugar (you may use white sugar)

5 little shakes of ground cinnamon, about 1/2 teaspoon

2 big shakes of pumpkin pie spice, (about 1/2 teaspoon)

A squeeze of a lemon, about 1 teaspoon, optional

Other Optional Flavoring: grated nutmeg, maple syrup, ground ginger, ground clove

#1. In a medium size pot, combine the apples, water, brown sugar, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice (and lemon, if using). Bring the mixture to a light bubble, cover, and cook over medium-low to medium heat until the apples are soft and pierce easily with a fork or the tip of a knife, about 15 to 20 minutes. Stir the mixture carefully every now and then.

#2. Let the apple mixture cool slightly, then mash with a potato masher or fork for a chunky consistency or blend/puree for a smoother consistency.
