We recently bought a bad bag of apples and rather than let them go bad, I peeled and cored them for applesauce! I had never made applesauce before but this makes it almost fool-proof!
8 medium apples, peeled and cored
1/3 cup white sugar plus 1 tsp molasses (I am out of brown sugar)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/3 cup water
and the juice of a half a lemon
I let it cook on low for 3 hours before tasting it and letting it go another hour. I will definitely be making it again!
