In the Kitchen: Too Simple Applesauce

I'm embarrassed by how easy this is.  I'm posting it more for myself so that I'll remember to make it every season.  My grandma used to cut her apples into small cubes to make applesauce and I was pleased to discover that it doesn't even have to be that involved.  This makes enough for about 4 decent portions.

5 big apples - I used Gala and Honeycrisp because both were on sale
Splenda and cinnamon

Wash and dry apples.  Peel and core them.  Don't throw the peel away, it's full of nutrients so enjoy it as a snack on it's own!  Slice the apples (feel free to leave the slices chunky).  Place in a pot, cover with a few tablespoons of splenda and a shake or two of cinnamon.  You can tell from the photo above that cinnamon makes me very happy.  Cook the apples over medium low heat for about an hour.  Stir every so often and the apples should start to break down into traditional applesauce texture.  Taste and adjust the sweetness as desired.  It's delicious hot or cold - make often.
