Fall Harvest Cinnamon Apple Sauce
While getting ready for this seasons celebrations & festivities at our house I wanted to make something out of the abundance of organic apples gifted to us from our friend's fall harvest on their farm in the interior of BC.
I wanted something delicious & comforting that was no-fuss & this simple cinnamon apple sauce was just the ticket.
Here's what you'll need:
11 - 12 small organic apples - cored & sliced * use any variety that you prefer or have access to. If you don't use organic apples make sure to peel the skins off or soak the apples in water & white vinegar for 20 minutes then rinse off to remove any pesticides from the skin of the fruit.
2 tablespoons of cinnamon
2 tablespoons of fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup of coconut sugar * optional - only needed if you chose a tart variety of apple
1. Core & Slice the apples - using an apple slicer & corer makes the process easy & efficient but is not absolutely necessary
2. Place all ingredients in the crock pot on low for about 5-6 hours or on medium heat in a large pot on the stove - the apples should soften in 20-25 minutes. * If you choose to make your apple sauce on the stove top just ensure that you check in to stir so that the apples don't stickto the bottom of the pot.
3. Use a blender, food processor, or potato masher to blend the sauce to a desired consistency
4. Share & Enjoy with others ❄

cover and cook on low for 6 hours
Use an immersion or standard blender to reach desired consistency - some prefer smooth, others a little chunky - both are delicious ♥

This is a look into an evening art class in the home & studio of Australian fine artist Philip Farley—a space straight out of a storybook surrounded by bushland and countless species of native wildlife.While studying upstairs I snuck down to snap a few shots of a cozy winter night of creativity, tea, and some fine art coaching.
