  • Dash of cinnamon


  • Thin slice the apples then chop fine.
  • Heat 1 Tbspn oil in cast iron pan and add chopped apples when hot.
  • Add a dash of cinnamon.
  • Stir often and cook until soft and “mushy” or consistency you like, about 10 minutes.
  • If it gets dry, add a few drops of water.
  • Optional: add a pinch of sweetener if the apples are not sweet.

Enjoy Doc’s Apple Sauce as a dessert, side dish or snack. It is the perfect complement to Doc’s Faux Potato Pancakes (Latkes).
