How to Make Applesauce
My kindergarten teacher had the class make applesauce and I have made this dish ever since she showed us how it was done. Since I bought about 25 pounds of MacIntosh apples from the Farmer's Market last week, I have been making applesauce and freezing the results for later use.
Here's the process:
Wash and peel about 5-8 apples.
Slice apples into chunks, discarding the core.
Place sliced apples into a large cooking pot along with a half a cup of water.
Cook apples on medium to low flame. After about 5-10 minutes, use a potato masher to crush the apples. Continue mashing the apples until the mixture reaches a consistency you prefer. For a smoother texture, puree the apples.
