I had a bunch of apples to use up an I found a basic applesauce recipe and then fiddled around with it.
- 4 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped
- 4 Red Delicious apples, peeled, cored and chopped
- 1 cup water
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Put water and apples in pot.
- Bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to low. Simmer approx 25 minutes, or until soft -- stirring occasinally.
- Slightly mash apples. Add sugar, cinnamon and all spice.
- Mix well, and let simmer about 5 more minutes.
- If you want a smoother texture sauce, pour into a blender, and Puree until desired texture.
I used the apples asked in the ingredients. I used less than 1/2 cup of brown sugar (probably 1/4 cup) cause I didn't have enough left. When I added the spices I was afraid my son would not like it. But when I gave him a little ramequin, he ate it all in just a few minutes. So he really liked it. Great recipe and it was very easy to do :) Thanks QuietPoet2004 :) Made for Cookbook tag game
Delicious! I had Braeburn apples on hand so I used those and just cut back on the sugar a tad. I did puree this since my toddlers don't care for chunky applesauce, but once I gave it a quick whirl in my food processor it was the perfect texture. Lovely sweetness. I did add a little more cinnamon as I (and my kids) like it that way. Made for PAC Spring '11.
This was very nice! I cut it down to two apples and used one granny smith and one pinata apple (I don't care for red delicious). They seemed to cook at slightly different rates so one was done before the other but I just left it a bit chunky (I like chunky applesauce anyway). I accidentally dumped too much cinnamon but scraped most of it out and it was fine. I like making homemade applesauce and this was a good one! Thanks for sharing :)
