Applesauce

"I had some apples I wanted to use up, and I found this recipe for homemade applesauce in The Pillsbury Cookbook (1995). I used 1/2 cup turbinado sugar, but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. This recipe actually calls for 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of sugar, but I thought 1/2 cup was sweet enough (add more sugar if you prefer). I learned something new...if you want a chunky applesauce, cook the water and sugar with the apples because most fruits keep their shape when cooked in a sugar-water mixture. They become saucelike when cooked in water (and you add the sugar after it's cooked down). Personally, I thought this applesauce was sweet like a dessert, but it's also quite delicious (and your house smells great). Who knew making applesauce could be so simple and delicious compared to the tasteless stuff they sell at the store?"

    Very good! I used brown sugar and a whole cinnamon stick instead of ground cinnamon. I used my stick blender to smooth it a bit.

    Very tasty! I only used 1/4 cup of brown sugar as I think apples are pretty close to sweet enough already, but followed the instructions otherwise.

    A little on the chunky side is how we like it and it had an excellent taste! I loved the cinnamon. More like a dessert and I'm not complaining!

I love to try new recipes, and this is a wonderful site to find new additions. I rarely make the same thing twice because it's so much fun to try something different. My life long dream is to travel the world and eat my way around it.
