I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving! It was chaos over here for a couple of days. We made so much food, I can’t possibly talk about it all, but I’ll show you some photos and give you my favorite applesauce recipe!

Basically, it was all delicious, and way too much…as usual!
Every year on Thanksgiving and Christmas, I make homemade applesauce. I’ve been perfecting this recipe for few years and this time, I’ve really outdone myself. Seriously, you should make this. You won’t regret it. The best part is that you get to drink while making it. These measurements are just a close approximation, as I’ve never actually written down what I use..I just kind of eyeball it. Feel free to alter whatever if necessary, as this isn’t completely exact.
Chunky Homestyle Applesauce
5 Medium/large macintosh apples
3 Tbs of packed brown sugar
2 1/2 Tbs of white sugar
1/4 Tsp of salt
1/2 Tsp of vanilla
2 Tsp of cinnamon
2 1/2 Tbs of your favorite beer
1.) Peel apples and then slice them and place in a medium sized pot.
2.) Add sugars, salt, vanilla and cinnamon. Cover the pot and cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes or until apples feel soft enough to crush.
3.) Keeping the apples on the heat, begin to crush until the apple pieces are fairly small (this really depend on how chunky you want it).
4.) Add in the beer and stir. This is the fun part because you get to finish the beer. Obviously.
5.) Cover and leave on low heat for about 8 minutes.
It serves between 5 and 7 people, if everyone takes a normal side serving. However, I’m not sure that’s very likely to happen because it’s so flipping tasty. So adjust accordingly. Enjoy!
