Tom's apple trees were the gift that kept giving, and giving, and giving this year. Wow.  Look at all of these apples that he picked.  And the photo below is missing one of the blue crates that he had already processed.  This will keep us busy for a few days.  I am exhausted after only making 3 batches of applesauce.  But Tom will keep it going.  

12 small apples, unpeeled, cored, seeded, diced
1 cup water
1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 teaspoons coconut palm sugar 

Cook all ingredients over low heat until the apples are tender.  Puree with an immersion blender stick.

Another option is to have a darling husband like mine who used an apple peeler/corer.  He makes life fun no matter what he does!!!  I put these apples into the VitaMix to chop them up, then cooked them for applesauce for the rest of my family and pureed them further for me with the immersion blender stick.
