increase desire to get back to the natural path of life. I am supposed to keep
my sugar and processed food diet to a minimum. Unfortunately, with a limited
income available, I've forfeited many of my own personal foods to supplement my
children's diet. What I am finding is that if I resort to a "from scratch"
approach, I can make my once favorite items for pennies! No need to buy that
prepackaged organic fare if I can make it easily at home. This spread is great
on toast, pancakes, and waffles. There is no sugar in it, and it has no fat. Best of all it is easy,
and comes out perfect every time.
I use my toaster oven for this instead of turning on the entire stove. More money saved!
4 cups of chopped apples, cores removed
1 tab. honey
1/4 tsp. allspice
2 tsp. cinnamon
Wash apples thoroughly and chop, don't peel. Place in an oven proof dish and just bearly cover with juice. Orange juice works quite well. Add the rest of the ingredients. Place in toaster oven on 350 for about 30 minutes or until done. There will be more juice when it is done, so handle with care. Place all in a blender and rotate on high until smooth. Place back in baking dish, and cook an additional 20 minutes or so, stirring frequently until mixture is thick. Should easily mound and stay in once place when topped on a plate. You will never buy canned items again!
