Fireball Bourbon Applesauce

Have I ever told you how much I LOVE apples? Okay I’m not a crazy fanatic, but I think they make such a great snack. I am even eating one right now, as I write this post. I also love all foods geared towards kids; Peanut butter and Jelly sandwich, mac ‘n cheese, grilled cheese, and of course, APPLESAUCE!

Every once in a while, I like to mix things up and put a little “adult” twist on my kids classics. Today I am going to show you this uber delicious recipe for homemade applesauce infused with whiskey! We always seem to have a bottle of Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey in our freezer, but we never buy it. What better way to use it than in food? Okay, well there is one other way, but I am not so fond of the flavor, to be honest….

This recipe is gluten free and I am pretty sure you can can it, but why would you want to wait to eat it?!

Ingredients:

I bought 12, but only used 9.

9 Golden Delicious Apples
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
¼ Cup Brown Sugar
¼ Cup White Sugar
4 oz Fireball Cinnamon Bourbon (2 shots)
1 Cup Water
¼ tsp Cinnamon

Directions:

Peel, core, and cut apples into 1 inch square pieces and mix with lemon juice.

Add the apples to a medium stock pot and pour other ingredients on top.


Mix thoroughly and bring to a boil on medium high heat.
Simmer on medium low heat for 20-25 minutes depending on how crunchy you would like your apples in the applesauce.


Once desired tenderness is reached, pour into a mixer or food processer to mash it up.
Funnel into mason jars and let cool for 2 hours on counter. Then refrigerate for 24 hours before enjoying!


That’s all you need to do to enjoy a delicious twist on this classic kids treat and it is oh, so yummy!!!
