Cooking With Bwog, John Jay And Ferris Edition: Cinnamon Applesauce

Yum!

It’s finally fall! You can almost feel the leaves on college walk about to change colors. You haven’t had the chance to head to an apple orchard upstate (midterms, what else?), but you dream of the perfect fall day: watching Halloweentown, drinking a mug of hot tea, and sliding your spoon into a warm bowl of fresh applesauce. You remember the John Jay and Ferris take-out boxes full of random ingredients in your dorm: apples, some cinnamon… perfect! Follow our recipe below for the perfect fall snack–made entirely out of food gathered from John Jay and Ferris!

Disclaimer: Make sure you grab your ingredients with a meal swipe–CU Dining offers take-out boxes for you to bring back to your dorm.

This week: Cinnamon Applesauce

Appliances: a blender and a stove

Ingredients:

  • 6 regular-sized apples, in any color
  • 3 packets of sugar
  • a spoonful or 2 of cinnamon
  • 2 pats of butter
  • a pinch of salt
  • a cup or so of good old NYC tap water
  • optional: nutmeg! can be found in Butler’s Blue Java!

Some dining-hall-to-table fresh ingredients

Steps

  1. Wash your apples, and cut them into ~quarters.
  2. Place a pot on simmer on your stove. Add all the apple pieces, a cup or so of water, your sugar, and your salt.
  3. Let simmer partly-uncovered for about half an hour. Wow! What a great time for a quick midterm study sesh!
  4. Get out your blender, and blend up the apple pieces in small-ish batches–not all at once! You know what your blender can handle… St0p blending at Applesauce Consistency. If you like it chunky, keep it chunky.
  5. Once all the apple is blended and together again in a bowl, mix in the two pats of butter! Mmm!
  6. Sprinkle cinnamon on top! And nutmeg, too, if you’re into that! Don’t go too crazy on either until you test a taste.
  7. Enjoy your massive quantity of applesauce with all of your stressed-out and grateful friends. It really tastes like fall.

Wallach Sophomores Madeline and Janie were having a casual Sunday afternoon in the lounge as I embarked on my applesauce endeavor, and naturally, I had to ask them if they’d give it a try.

Madeline told me: “It tastes like applesauce. It tastes like organic applesauce. Not like Mott’s, like stuff you get at Whole Foods.”

“This is good. I like this,” Janie agreed. “Congrats,” she continued. “You’ve converted John Jay food into something edible.”

But don’t just take their word for it! Give our cinnamon applesauce recipe a shot, let Bwog know what you think, and stay tuned for more Food You Can Make With Ingredients From John Jay And Ferris!
