Each of my students got to take home a jar of applesauce that we had made in class for their Thanksgiving dinners this weekend.
30 apples (we used McIntosh)
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp. cinnamon
2 cups water
Peel, core and chop the apples into chunks. Simmer in a large stock pot until apples begin to break down. Add water, sugar, and cinnamon, and continue simmering. You may wish to use a masher to mash the apples. Remove from heat and fill clean jars (we used 15 1-cup jars). I processed them for 15 minutes.
We made a magnet to go on top by mixing equal parts of cinnamon and applesauce together (2 tbsp of each). Students molded this into a shape and we allowed the mixture to dry for 2 school days. Next, we painted the top with glue and dipped it in glitter. After, I hot glued a magnet onto the back and we stuck them on top of our jars!
