Among the Leaves

When I stumbled upon those apples scattered among the fallen leaves the other day while out walking, I decided to gather some to enjoy later at home. What a treat to have warm applesauce today!
Apples found among the leaves.
Washed, peeled, diced, then washed again.
Cooked on the stove.
Boiled, simmered and cooked until creamy.
Sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg added.
Stirred, boiled and simmered some more.
Cooked until creamy.
Poured into containers.
Kept fresh in the refrigerator.
Really Rose's Fresh Applesauce
8 Cups Chopped Apples
1 Cup Water
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon Ground Cinnamon
1-1/2 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
Wash, peel and chop the apples. Put in a large pan and pour in the water. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, then reduce heat and simmer until fruit is soft and creamy. Stir in sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Bring to a boil again, stirring until well blended. Remove from heat. Store in containers in the refrigerator for several days, or freeze to use later.
