Applesauce Judy's Foodies Style!


There is nothing better than homemade applesauce! No bought jar can compare to the creaminess of make it yourself from scratch sauce. The best thing about applesauce is it is easy!

6 Pounds of Apples, this was about 20 medium apples.I used Macintosh, they have nice color & cook up creamy. Wash,quarter, & core the apples. Do not peel!
2/3 Cup Water 
2/3 Cup Sugar, more or less to taste!
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon, optional.
Place water in a large deep cooking pot & heat on medium heat. As you prepare your apples throw them into the pot on the stove to start their cooking process. Once all the apples are in the pot cover with a lid & cook over medium heat until they are completely soft!                                                             

This should take about 30 minutes. Stir often as the apples cook, to prevent them from sticking. Once apples are completely soft, turn off the heat. Now sieve apples through a mesh strainer or run them through a food mill. This will remove the skins & give you creamy applesauce. The reason I cook the apples with the skins on is it gives your applesauce a great color, just a tinge of pink! Once all the apples have been sieved place the sauce back into the pot over medium heat. Now add the sugar & cinnamon, I add about 1/2 cup of sugar stir & cook & then taste. If still to tart add a little more tasting until it is just right. Keep in mind the sauce will taste sweeter once chilled.. Cook & stir until sugar is melted. Remove sauce from stove & chill. This made about 7 cups of applesauce. I will keep some out for tomorrow, give some to my grandchildren & freeze the rest. 

This is my large mixing bowl full of finished Applesauce!
