We picked a bushel of apples this fall and were determined to make something we could enjoy later on.
We used our apple corer slicer peeler to prepare 3 lbs of apples.
Look how nice the apples turn out.
I love how they are cut into spirals. After cutting we placed the apples in a pot with 1/3 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Then we cooked the whole thing on medium high heat until they were mushy.
We smashed the apples through a chinois my grandma gave me. (Note: This year we used our stick blender... worked great! - Oct 2007
The texture turned out perfect.
The applesauce then goes back onto the stove with 3/4 cup of sugar and cinnamon to taste. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 5 minutes.
Tadah... applesauce! Makes about 2 pints.
