DIRECTIONS

  • Combine apples, red wine, bay leaf and sugar (adjust the amount of sugar based on your preference and the tartness of the apples) in a large saucepan.
  • Cover and cook over medium heat for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Mash the apples with the back of a spoon as they begin to soften.
  • Remove the bay leaf.
  • For thicker applesauce, boil uncovered and stir constantly until it has reduced slightly.
  • Use a food mill, if you want a smoother sauce.
  • Add butter and adjust the sweetness by adding more sugar if necessary.
