A twist on plain applesauce! This recipe comes from an older cookbook entitled "The Modern Family Cook Book" by Meta Given. The edition I have was published in 1945. I made this recipe for my daughters quite awhile ago and they enjoyed it. I just recently stumbled across it again and wanted to post it so I don't lose it and so I could share it.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 lb dried apricot
  • 1 12 lbs apples, tart (5 or 6 medium)
  • 12 cup sugar

Directions

  1. Wash apricots and soak for 4 hours in enough water to cover.
  2. Peel, core and slice the washed apples.
  3. In a medium saucepan, simmer the apricots and the soaking water for 10 minutes.
  4. Put apple slices on top of the simmering apricots, cover and simmer until the apples are tender, approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Thoroughly mix the sugar with the fruits and simmer 2 minutes longer.
  6. Serve hot or cold, strained or unstrained, as desired.
