My kids are sick. Jenna is coming ‘round the bend and should be ready for school tomorrow but Ian and Kara are toast. Kara’s got strep and Ian has a stomach bug…
When I went all the way to Spokane to go grocery shopping there was a man selling apples on the side of the road in the snow. I bought organic pink ladies for $.61 a pound.YUM! I ended up buying 13 pounds. That’s a lot of apples. With my sick kids I decided to make scratch applesauce.
I googled and googled and came up with this recipe from globalgourmet.com for applesauce: With the peels on! Not Cored! How easy! Alas, it did not work out so well.
Yield 2 qts
Preparation Time :1:00
If you like chunky applesauce, cook the peels and cores and purée them, and add to the cooked chunks. Never throw away the peels and cores as they supply pectin to give the cold sauce a good consistency.
