…make applesauce!! Here’s how: Take lots of apples (we use Granny Smith, Pippins, or a combination of whatever you have); put them in a pot; turn the heat to low and cover; wait until they cook down, then strain through a food mill or sieve (easier with a food mill!). That’s it!!
No need to peel, cut, or core. And resist the temptation to put water in with the fruit. Just throw ’em in the pot! You can add sugar to taste, you can add a cinnamon stick for flavor, but if you do nothing at all, you will have tangy, delectable applesauce, ready to use as a yummy side dish for grilled meats and vegetables, or easy to freeze in sterilized jars for when winter comes around.
