We had lunch with a friend the other day and she suggested walking to the light house in Kommetjie. Reminds me why I love living in South Africa.
Surfers…the water had to have been freezing! I guess that’s what a wet suit is for!
We have such good friends here. So lucky!


And now on to this apple sauce…love it. That’s all I have to say. I don’t know if I could eat apple sauce out of a jar anymore. This is so much tastier–and really, it’s super easy.


Bag of apples (8-ish), I prefer granny smith, skins removed and sliced or chopped
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup water
cinnamon, to taste




Combine ingredients in sauce pan. Bring to boil and let simmer for 15-20 minutes (until apples are soft). Mash with hand-mixer or potato masher. I use a potato masher for a chunkier sauce.


That’s it. Delicious homemade apple sauce! This is out-of-this-world-good warmed up and served over waffles or pancakes.
