Chunky Applesauce, Take 2

21 May

As I was preparing to write this entry, I realized I had already done a post on Applesauce. However, this recipe has a more citrusy and less spicy bent to it than the prior recipe. We had a bunch of random apples I wanted to use before they went bad, so I didn’t stress over whether they were the “right” apples for sauce, I just went with it. Yum!

Ingredients

  • 3 to 4 lbs of peeled, cored, and quartered apples. (Make sure you use a good cooking apple like Golden Delicious, Jonagold, Granny Smith, Fuji, Jonathan, Mcintosh, or Gravenstein.)
  • 4 strips of lemon peel – use a vegetable peeler to strip 4 lengths
  • Juice of one lemon, about 3-4 Tbsp
  • 3 inches of cinnamon stick [didn’t have, I used ground]
  • 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar
  • up to 1/4 cup of white sugar
  • [I added a handful of golden raisins]
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt

Instructions

  1. Put all ingredients into a large pot. Cover. Bring to boil. Lower heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat. Remove cinnamon sticks and lemon peels. Mash with potato masher.
