Ingredients:

2 T. Lemon Juice
1 - 2 T. sugar or sweetner to taste
Pinch of salt
1/2 - 1 tsp. cinnamon
1 C. (approximately) mini marshmallows

Directions:
This is one of those recipes for which there is no real recipe. Peel and core apples and cut into chunks. Immediately put apples in pan of water to which you've added lemon juice, to keep them from discoloring while you prepare rest of apples. (Note, if you have any apples to use up, you can use any apples, although tart cooking apples are usually best.) After all apples are prepared, drain all but about 1 inch of water out of pan. Bring to boil and cook until apples are tender, about 15 mins. -- watch them -- you may have to add a little more water. Remove from heat and drain any excess water out of apples and mash with a potato masher -- leaving some larger chunks in. If it appears too thick, add a little water and stir until you like the consistency of the applesauce. Add pinch of salt, sugar (or sweetner) to taste (remember that the marshmallows will add some sweetness to it), cinnamon (add it and stir -- you want it to look like there's cinnamon in it -- depending on how many apples you may need more or less). Stir well and top with a handful or so of mini marshmallows. Replace the lid and let sit until serving time, stir in melted marshmallows and serve warm.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I always make applesauce when I cook pork, as apples aid in the digestion of pork. The first time I made homemade applesauce for Dennis' kids, they all were determined not to even taste it. "Warm applesauce?" they asked. "We like it out of the jar!:" Dennis and I were eating it and finally they each decided to "taste" it and ended up licking the pan clean. Now when I make it, Dennis and I have to make sure we get some or the kids will eat it all before we get any!
