Applesauce I

Applesauce I


4 pounds apples
1 lemon
2 cinnamon sticks
½ cup apple juice, cider or water
Honey, brown sugar or maple syrup to taste.

Quarter the apples and the lemon. Place in a heavy pot with the cinnamon sticks. Add apple juice, cider or water.

Cover, bring to a boil, and then simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally to turn the apples and making sure they do not stick. You may want to add some liquid. Cook about 20 minutes, or until apples are soft. Remove cinnamon sticks.

Put the sauce through a food mill and adjust seasoning by adding honey, brown sugar or maple syrup to taste.

Apple Sauce Addendum OOOOPS! Sorry, I forgot to let the readers know-return the reserved cinnamon sticks to the apple sauce mixture after it has been processed. This deepens the flavor. Also, it's not necessary to peel the apples before cooking, the milling process will do that for you. Again, sorry for the oversight. Reply

Apple Sauce Not bad-in the spirit of Fahrbrengen and generosity, I am sharing a similar recipe with your readers.
Ingredients: 4-5 lbs. cooking apples (Jonathans seem to be the best variety) quartered and cored, 2 sticks of cinnamon, 1/3 cup of red hots (cinnamon imperials) , about 1/3 cup of apple juice, apple cider or white grape juice.

All goes in a large stock pot, on medium heat, covered, about 20 minutes or until very soft.

Remove from heat and take out, but RESERVE the cinnamon sticks.

Put apple mixture through food mill, return sticks to container and add 1 tsp. vanilla extract and 1/2 tsp. lemon extract, taste for sweetness and gradually add up to 1/4 cup sugar.

Since the mixture will be hot, do not oversweeten. The flavors will develop as the sauce cools. This tastes good hot or cold.

Happy Chanukah! Reply
