Learn from Noah, build an ark before it rains.
Don't confuse the apple cider for cider vinegar - I almost did that once; so make sure you use apple cider. This recipe is adapted from a basic recipe from Grandma Carole, my Mom. You can substitute pumpkin, or butternut squash, or chickpeas (cooked and pureed) for the applesauce, if you like. Using cooked pumpkin or butternut squash, is my favorite. You can also leave out the cooked apple, sugar, butter mixture and use it as a topping instead.
