Homemade Applesauce!

This week in class we are talking about Hanukkah, which starts Sunday. Every year we make latkes in class as we talk about this 8 day long holiday. And every year, I give the kids store bought applesauce to go with our latkes. Well, THIS year, since we have so many apples on our share table that can't leave the building, I decided we should make homemade applesauce! We gathered our apples and the kids help me wash, core and cut the apples before we put them into our crock pot to cook.

16 apples
2 cups water
1 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

 Leave it to me to forget measuring cups at home and not grab the kitchen cart at school. So our classroom measuring containers had to do, and they worked out just fine!

After the kids finished cutting up their apples into bite sized chunks and threw them into the crock pot. Then I added our sugar and water.

After our apple cooked for a few hours, I stuck them in the blender, drained the excess water, and blended them up!

We're going to have the most delicious applesauce to go with our latkes! At the end of the week, I'm going to send home our recipe for homemade applesauce and latkes on little recipe cards attached to the kids' menorah's they're making. Well, that's the plan anyway.

Happy cooking!
