You will need:
5 medium to large apples, any variety (I typically use at least 3 varieties of apples. For this apple sauce I used Granny Smith, Gala and Pink Lady)
2-4 Tbsp. apple cider or apple juice (you can use water, but I like to always add more flavor and depth)
The juice from one clementine (you may substitute lemon, lime or any other citrus type fruit. I like fresh juice and clementine's are what I had in the fridge)
2 Tbsp. Brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla flavoring
To make your apple sauce, first peel and core your apples, then dice them up. I like my apple sauce extra chunky so I am not very concerned with the pieces being a uniform shape, some can be small, some can be much larger.
I like to serve this warm, and often times some vanilla ice cream manages to hop out of nowhere and perch itself on top. I really don't know how this happens, but it is too good for me to complain.
I've also been known to scoop a bit of apple sauce onto pork chops at dinner time.
