If you’ve never made applesauce before you MUST do this. It is so easy, takes only a few minutes, and tastes fantastic! Choose apples that are soft so they cook down quickly, like Braeburn, Cortland, McIntosh, Fuji, Golden Delicious, and the like. You will get the best applesauce if you mix up the types of apples – very flavorful and sweet! Now, if I write too much more it will take you longer to read this than it will to make your own applesauce, so let’s go with the ingredients list!
- 6-8 Cooking Apples, I used Courtland
Eat the applesauce while it’s warm – it’s a taste treat you’ll surely want to repeat. Of course it will stay fresh in the fridge for a few days, but I’m betting it won’t last that long!
Now, this is actually a postscript – I received a comment from a fan, Bernadette, and she has an even faster way! Just wash the apples with vinegar to remove the wax, etc. Chop the apples into large pieces including the skin, seeds, and all. Put them in a pot covered in water and cook until they are soft. Pour the pot into a large sieve over a large bowl and press the applesauce into the bowl – all the stems, seeds and skin remain in the sieve! What’s best about this is that the applesauce is a pretty pink color. LOVE IT!!!! Thanks so much Bernadette.
