It’s fall and that means apples. Applesauce, apple crisp, apple pancakes….Yesterday we boiled the apples for applesauce.
Makes about 10 quarts
- lots of apples – we filled a 12 qt. pan and half of an 8 qt. pan (sorry….we didn’t weigh before hand)
- cinnamon – 2 tbs.
Wash and cut the apples. Put all pieces (including seeds and core) into a large pot with about an inch of water in the bottom. Bring to boil and cook until the apples are soft and break easily with a wooden spoon. Let cool and then process in a food mill. This will remove all the seeds and core bits. You may want to run it through the mill a couple of times. We use a hand blender once it’s been through the food mill. The hand blender makes it nice and smooth. Return the mixture to the pot. Add cinnamon to taste and heat to bubbling. Then take your sanitized jars and fill with the hot sauce. Process in a hot water canner for 20 minutes.
