Homemade Apple Sause with a Special Ingredient

Apple sauce is a fall staple and I think it can be for adults too not just kids. You could go to the store and buy it but like everything else it tastes better homemade. This apple sauce is homemade but I add something unique to make it extra special. My grandma heard about this ingredient from a friend so I thought I would pass the recipe along. This is great as a snack, dessert or even with meat at dinner. Comment below if you make the apple sauce  :) 

None of these measurements are set in stone so adjust it as you would like

* About 8-10 medium sized apples 
* 1/2 cup of water
* 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon  
* 1 teaspoon of brown sugar 
* 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice 
* 1/2 cup of hot tamales or red hots. I normally use red hots but I bought the wrong thing and it still turned out. (You can always add more but start of with less until you adjust to the right flavor)  

Step 1: Peal and core all apples. Then place them in a large pot.

Step 2: Start to mash the apples by hand to break them up. 

Step 3: Add the water to the apple pot 

Step 4: Add the cinnamon, brown sugar and lemon juice 

Step 5: Bring all the ingredients that are in the pot to a boil. Then reduce the heat to a simmer, cover the pot with the lid and leave it on the heat for 20 minutes.  

Step 6: Use a potato masher to mash the apples. I like mine chunky but you could put the applesauce into the food processor for a smooth texture. 

Step 7: Add the red hots and stir until they are combined. 

Done !!!!! 

For an added touch you could store the apple sauce in cute containers and even give it as a gift!!!
