DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Peel the apples with a vegetable peeler, remove the core and cut into 1-inch chunks.
  • Heat a medium saute pan on medium-high heat with the butter in it. When the butter begins to brown add the lemon juice and cook for 30 seconds. Stir in the apples and salt. Saute for 3 to 4 minutes until the edges just begin to color. Add the honey and put in oven for about 15 to 20 minutes until the apples are soft and lightly caramelized.
  • Mash with a fork for a chunky version, or put in food processor for a smoother sauce. Serve warm, room temperature or cold.
  • Cook's Notes: Most applesauce recipes call for cooking the apples on the stovetop from start to finish. I prefer to start them on the stovetop and then finish them in a hot oven. The oven heat concentrates their flavors by drying and caramelizing them slightly. Although I have suggested a couple of apple varieties, you can use what good cooking apples are available in your area.
