The other day our son made applesauce with his kindergarten class. He came home from school beaming. “Mom, I got to cut up the apples with a knife (plastic) and we made it in the Instant Pot, just like yours!” I loved how happy and empowered he was. He grabbed his apron and asked me if I had plans for the apples on our counter. I think I surprised him when I said that they were actually for us to make applesauce.

He helped me peel all of the apples. I cored them and he carefully sliced each one into 1/4-inch slices, just like I had asked. I remembered I had a little bit of pumpkin puree left over from a recipe I had made earlier in the week, so I asked him what he thought about tossing it in.

He was all for it. I knew he would be. Our kids love those GoGo Squeeze applesauce pouches and every fall they come out with a limited edition pumpkin spice version. They go nuts for it!
