This was a hit when my kids were younger--I had forgotten about this recipe until now-thanks for reminding me-it's applesauce weather. (As much as it can be in Houston) Good luck-Linda Rosy Applesauce Makes 4 cups
- 3 lbs apples
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
- 1 cinnamon stick
- Cut unpeeled but cored apples into chunks, place in large sauce pan.
- Add 1/2 inch of water.
- Stir in sugar, vanilla and cinnamon.
- Heat to boiling, reduce to low and simmer, covered, until apples soften (about 30 min.) Press through a fine sieve or the fine disc of a food mill.
- Taste and adjust seasoning.
This recipes was really easy. I did peel apples first and then just used potato masher when done. It is really good. Thank you.
I really enjoyed making this; it reminded me a lot of the applesauce my mom makes. I did it in the corckpot and then I did another batch on the stove. the crockpot version turned out better, but I don't know why. next time, I'll definitely take the time to peel the apples--I just used my handblender to puree everything, and it left sharp slivers of peel. (silly me...) thanks for a great recipe, Linda!
I like this recipe with papergodess' recommendation for the crockpot! The first batch, though, I wasn't happy with the peels even after the food processor. The next batch I peeled , and even though I left out the cinnamon stick, ROSY is nice. Mine, like always,even after lemon juice to try and stop it, turned way too dark for me. But that's just me, my husband cares not what the color is! I'm making another batch tonight!
