Chunky Pumpkin Apple Sauce

Yield: Makes about 2 cups

Part spiced applesauce, part pumpkin butter, this condiment is addictive! I love to spoon it over oatmeal, but most of the time I just eat it straight with a spoon! I love to bite into chunks of apple, but if you like smooth applesauce, feel free to puree.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb green apples (3 small apples), chopped into 1/4" pieces (DO NOT PEEL)
  • 3 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup 100% pumpkin puree

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients, except for the pumpkin, into a saucepan and bring liquid to a boil.
  2. As soon as liquid comes to a boil, turn heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring a few times during the cooking process.
  3. Add the pumpkin puree and cook for 3 more minutes.

Notes

Tastes delicious warm or cold.
