Homemade McIntosh Applesauce With Raisins

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Marie

A great side dish and homemade applesauce is so much better! Made real easy by using the microwave. The raisins kick it up a notch!

Yummy! This was so good, and so easy. Two things threw me off- it was very dark in colour because of all the cinnamon, which made it look a bit unappealing, I thought. And there seemed to be a lot of raisins. I don't know, maybe my apples were on the small side and this made everything else stronger. I probably should have added one or two more to make up for the runtiness of my little apples! It tastes absolutely *wonderful* though! (I've only snuck a bite while it was still hot, I'm waiting to see if it's as amazing tasting when it's cold too! Hoping the cinnamon won't get stronger in the fridge).
