Smooth Homemade Autumn Applesauce
Smooth Autumn Applesauce
Autumn is the best time of year for fresh apples. Apples are delicious fresh off the tree but are also tasty when cooked. One method of cooking apples is making applesauce.
This is a family recipe which uses McIntosh apples. They ripen in late September. When choosing the apples, look for apples that are half red, half green. See picture below.
In this recipe you can alter the amount of sugar to your taste. I have made this applesauce with Splenda instead of regular sugar and it was still delicious. It is also good with cinnamon sprinkled on top. Enjoy.
- 13 McIntosh Apples
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1 Tbs Vanilla extract
- Core all apples. It is not necessary to peel skin, the skin will fall off while boiling.
- Place in large pot filled with water. Boil apples until soft and skin starts peeling.
- Drain, pull skin off apples and place in food processor. Pour processed apples in a large bowl, add sugar and vanilla.
