There are a few things that you can make in your kitchen that are so surprisingly easy to do but yet we still think that they are impossible and somehow they come directly from nature packaged and sealed in a nice little container.  One of these things is whipped cream.  Whipped cream does not actually come in that form straight from the udder!  I know!  Hard to believe. 

Another simple thing to make yourself is applesauce.  You know the best part?  It tastes a million times better than the store-bought stuff.  It's got chunks of real apple in it so you can actually recognize the origin of the food and it is naturally sweet without all of the added sugar.
Sack of Apples (sweet-ish ones are better for this, or a mixture...I used McIntosh)
Cinnamon (optional)
Sugar (optional)

1.  Peel, core and slice your apples.
2.  Place in the bottom of a large pot.
3.  Add a little bit of water to the bottom of the pot (maybe 1/2c for the entire sack of apples).

4.  Cook over medium heat until the apples start to break apart.  Then use a potato masher to smash the remaining pieces of apple. 

5.  Optional, add cinnamon and/or sugar to taste.  Serve it warm or refridgerate...both are amazing.
