Recipe by Georgeann Dodge
Found this an easy alternative to canning cinnamon applesauce every year. This is fast and easy and can be made up as you need it. I think I got this recipe out of the newspaper.
- 3 lbs cooking apples, such as McIntosh, cored and sliced (do not peel)
- 1 1⁄2 cups cranberry juice cocktail
- 2⁄3 cup red-hot candies
Directions See How It's Made
- In a large pot, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil. cook over medium heat, covered, 15 minutes. Lower heat; simmer until apples are very soft, about 20 minutes. Cool slightly. Transfer to a food processor with the knife blade; process until smooth. Serve warm, chilled or at room temperature. Serves 10.
- NOTE: I usually make half the recipe. I have used Granny Smith apples with great results.
