Fresh applesauce is one fall treat that I look forward to. I make it every year and enjoy it for breakfast.
I'm going to let photos do the talking. The recipe follows.
I talked to this apple tree when I passed it on snowshoes. It was hoping for Spring as much as I was.
Apples blossoms in the Spring-time herald good things to come...
During the picking season so many apples end up on the ground!
Apples, allspice, cloves, ginger, honey and cinnamon and some water. So simple.
Ready to eat!
Homemade Apple Sauce
15 cooking apples (Cortland, Macoun, Macintosh, etc)
8 oz water
1/4 cup honey
2 oz orange liquer
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp minced ginger
1 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cloves
Core, peel and slice the apples. Combine all ingredients in a large pot. Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer until the apples break apart. Add more water if needed to
allow apples to break down. Let cool and enjoy.
