What do you want to be when you grow up? This is a question we pose to children because they are still full of promise and have their entire life ahead of them. We, on the other hand, have done all the growing up we are going to do. We are already who we are going to be when we grow up. Or are we? I would like to submit for your consideration that if you like to cook, you are a Chef. If you like to write, you are a writer. And if you like to sing, you are already a singer. Whatever you have passion for and enjoy regularly is who you are no matter how you earn a living.
Today I am speaking directly to the passionate cooks, bakers and everyone who shows love through their food. You are all chefs in my book. Fall is coming and sweets are a big part of the holiday menu. Can you really serve good, wholesome, food right from your stovetop without adding a bunch of unnecessary sugar and calories? The answer is, of course, a resounding yes.
Last fall I received a large bag of sweet fuji apples for a gift. I inadvertently left them in my car for the day and as it turned out they were a bit soft for eating directly. I decided, along with my 10-year-old daughter, to turn the apples into applesauce using my 4 Quart 360 Cookware Stockpot. I know what you are thinking … This is going to take forever and be a huge mess. You could not be more wrong. Using 360 with vapor technology we were able to make the applesauce in less time than it took to skin the apples. Below is a brief description of what we did and how we did it.
In the end we did add a bit of cinnamon just to see how it changed the taste, which was a great call as it made the applesauce even yummier.
I can’t tell you how easy and fun it was to make our own applesauce directly on the stovetop with nothing added. My daughter even mentioned the applesauce was so creamy it would have made great baby food.
