La Compote de Pommes (Apple Sauce)

I’ve been pretty impressed with how many fun fall activities both Cole and Bennett have been doing at school lately. Bennett has had a field trip to the library, hosted a tea party for the parents, and roasted pumpkin seeds. Cole has gone to the pumpkin patch, learned how to curl, and made pumpkin pie. One thing they’ve both made at school is apple sauce. It’s a great recipe to do with kids because it’s so easy, and what kid doesn’t love apple sauce? Cole brought home a sample of their apple sauce and a copy of the recipe. He’s in french immersion, so he calls it ‘La Compote de Pommes.’ I like the sound of that much better than apple sauce! So I’m going to share with you my adapted version of Cole’s school recipe for la compote de pommes. I added the cinnamon stick for more flavour. I did find it a little sweet, so feel free to reduce the sugar to your taste.

La Compote de Pommes (Apple Sauce)
10 apples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
1 cup of water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
1 cinnamon stick

Place all ingredients in a large pot over high heat until boiling, then reduce heat to simmer and cook until apples are tender (about 20 minutes). Remove cinnamon stick, then mash and enjoy!
