How to Make Apple Sauce
- The best apples for applesauce are Gala, Fuji, Jonathan, Golden Delicious, Jonalicious or Jonagold. You can use any of these types or mix them up for a tasty blend of flavors. I used 2 fuji, 2 gala, 4 granny smith and 2 delicious. Peel and core apples. Slice or chop apples. You can keep the apples in water from turning brown while preparing.
- In a large pot place the apples and apple juice. Cover and cook over medium heat for about 25 or more minutes.
- Taste for sweetness, you don't need a lot of sugar because the apples are sweet enough. Omit the sugar if you have health concerns. If from adding too much sugar, add drop or two of lemon juice and stir. If you like more spice, feel free to add nutmeg or other spices to your liking, even raisins are good in this recipe.
