I have a simple recipe to share with you that screams fall. In fact, I’m pretty sure you’ll feel cozy and warm all over just reading about it. Soon you’ll have applesauce baking in the oven, and an array of colorful leaves falling to the ground outside. Pretty much sums up heaven on earth, don’t ya think?
Fall at our home in the Northwest would not be complete without a family trip to a few local apple orchards in Green Bluff, Washington.
This oven baked applesauce recipe is bursting with love from my heart to yours. I hope you enjoy baking this magnificent time of year every bit as much as I do.
