Classic Applesauce

EF Classic Applesauce

Every autumn I used to make a roasted applesauce.  I liked it because it was different.  My husband says that I am the only one who liked it…. So, I made this classic applesauce.  I will admit that everyone loved it!  This recipe is from Everyday Food.

  1. Peel, core, and slice 4 pounds apples such as McIntosh, Gala, and Braeburn.
  2. In a large pot, bring apples, 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (from 2 lemons), and 1 1/2 cups water to a boil over high.  Reduce heat and simmer until apples are very soft and falling apart, 25-30+ minutes.
  3. Mash with a potato masher or pulse in a food processor (or immersion blender) until smooth with small chunks remaining. (Add pinch of salt, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and sugar- if using.)
  4. Let cool, then transfer applesauce to airtight containers.  Refrigerate, up to 5 days, or freeze, up to 2 months.
