Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

homemade applesauce

this week i tried a very simple recipe and made homemade applesauce.   since i only had these three large apples, i wasn't able to make a large serving, but just enough to share for one meal.

i simply peeled the apples, and chopped them into small cubes.  i placed them on the stove for about 30 minutes, stirring once and awhile, to soften the apples into sauce.  then, i added 1 tablespoon of vanilla and some sugar to taste.  i found the recipe in this wonderful book from my midland county public library.  i have to say that the vanilla gave the sour apples a bright taste and delicious flavor.

here is a photo of the homemade applesauce that i served for dinner this week.  it was truly yummy and nothing like applesauce from the market.
