A Harvest Time Applesauce and Fruit Leather Recipe
We all have our favorite apple recipes this time of year; I like to combine my favorite apple recipe with another Autumn favorite, squash, to create a warm and filling side dish that my children request.
6 medium apples
1 acorn squash
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp nutmeg
1-1 ½ Tbs cinnamon to taste (or use sticks in the herb infuser)
3-4 whole cloves
Lightly steam squash to make peeling it simpler.
Roughly chop apples and squash and place them into a pot of water (about 3/4 covered).
Put an herb infuser with cloves (and cinnamon sticks) into the boiling pot. Cover and cook on medium-low for 1 hour. Add spices, and mash.
