Applesauce Recipe TNT
Not having a food mill, I wasn't sure how well this would turn out, but it couldn't be easier or better!
1/2 dozen apples, I prefer a sweet-tart cooking apple (I've used Cortland and Macintosh)
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 c water
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp (or less depending on taste) ground cinnamon
Mix together sugar and cinnamon, set aside.
Peel, core and quarter apples and place in an enamel pot. Toss with lemon juice and cover with 1 c water. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat. Let simmer about 30 minutes or until apples break down. Stir occasionally, using the spoon to break apart the apples as they cook.
Remove from heat, stir in sugar/cinnamon mixture.
At this point, I used my potato masher just to mash the apples up a bit and break up the larger chunks I might have missed with my spoon as they cooked.
This freezes very well too!
