Making Our Own Applesauce!
Last week our class made applesauce from scratch. After exploring the parts of an apple and learning about how they grow, we washed and peeled the apples. Then, we cut the apples using small plastic knives. Students helped me to put the apples in the big pot. We added lemon juice and cinnamon sticks. After two hours cooking in the slow cooker, we had a delicious applesauce snack. We loved trying our applesauce! It was very sweet and a little sour.
Have you ever made applesauce at home? Here is a simple recipe if you want to try this great healthy snack.
Our Applesauce Recipe
peel and slice 6 Mcintosh apples ( they are the best for sauce- very sweet)
