Applesauce (using only apples) to Freeze

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Aroostook

This recipe is so simple I hesitate to post it. It is such a staple at our house, just thought others might like to try this method. A rotary food press (or food mill) is needed for this this "recipe". (Mirro makes one If you search under "aubuchonhardware + rotary food press" a pic will pop up)

This works wonderful!!!! So nice to not have to seed, core, or peel the apples. I ran them through my "Presto Food Strainer and Sauce Maker" to make this. I actually canned mine through a water bath, but freezing it is great too. It is the best applesauce ever without any of the added junk. Applesauce can actually be used to make apple butter in this recipe too:
