Applesauce

When it's this easy to make homemade applesauce, there's no more buying it from the store.  This is Alton Brown's recipe, straight-up, but halved.

If you don't have a microwave safe container with a lid, use two bowls to cover the apple mixture yet vent the steam, as I did.  

Applesauce
makes 2 C

2 golden delicious apples, peeled, cored, and quartered
1 Fuji apple, peeled, cored, and quartered
1/2 C apple juice
1 TB brandy (optional)
1.5 TB honey
1/4 ts cinnamon

Add all ingredients to a microwavable container.  Close lid but vent one corner for the steam to escape.  Zap on high power for 12 minutes, or until apples are completely soft.  Mash with a potato masher or spoon.  Serve warm or chill in the fridge if you like your sauce chilled.
