Sunday . . . a special day . . . with time set apart for worship, rest, family, and friends. My extended family met this morning – bright and early – for breakfast at Egg Harbor Restaurant, compliments of my generous parents. After that, we went to church and shared communion with yet another extended family – a family into which we’ve been adopted through faith in Christ.
However you’re spending today and whoever you’re spending it with, I hope your day is meaningful and restful. Sunday, for me, is often a good day to reflect on the previous week and give some thought to the coming one. Sometimes, I pull out recipes that I’d like to try. If you happen to be pondering what dishes you’ll prepare for your family this week, here’s one to consider. It’s a favorite of ours. And it’s very easy.
CINNAMON APPLESAUCE, CROCKPOT STYLE
1. Cut up 10 large apples (peel, core, and slice into chunks) and place them in the bottom of your crockpot.
2. Mix 3/4 cup sugar with 1 tsp. cinnamon.
3. Add 1/2 cup water to the sugar/cinnamon mixture.
4. Pour sugar/cinnamon/water mixture over the apple chunks, and stir.
5. Cover crockpot, and cook on low for 8-10 hours, or high for 3-4 hours.
6. Smash the cooked apples a little with a potato masher or large spoon, and serve warm. (Or refrigerate, and serve later. It freezes well, too.)
The above recipe serves 4-5 people, so I often double it. It’s a hit with company.
