ginger plum applesauce

good morning to you.
it reminds me of being a kid. 
yea that's it. 

this applesauce is dang tasty. 
homemade applesauce > applesauce in those individual plastic containers
put it on grilled things like steak or pork. put it on bread with cheese. make yourself feel fancy in the morning and put it on broiled peaches with a little greek yogurt. or just take spoonfuls every time you walk by the kitchen. 
sauce. saucy. mmmBOP.

Ginger Plum Applesauce
adapted from epicurious

6-7 apples, mix of fuji, granny smith, and pink lady
6-7 plums, red or black
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup brown sugar
small knob of ginger, grated

peel, quarter and seed the apples. pit and quarter the plums. throw everything into a big pot and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until fruit is very tender and falling apart, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. if you don't want the plum skins in your sauce, push mixture through a mesh sieve and throw away peels. i didn't mind the soft plum skins so i just mashed it with a potato masher.
