It's Atutumn!!! And I made apple sauce from whole apples. :) It was seriously SOOO good. Here's how you do it:
Start with a bunch of little apples.
Wash, core and half them all.
Put all the cored and halved apples in a big-ish pot with about 2 T lemon juice and a touch of water. (If you want it to be like cinnamon flavored, add some cinnamon.) Simmer the combination until all the apples are mushy (about 20 minutes). Then pick out all the skins of the apples. (You can use them in your green smoothie or something!)
Now you can smash up the apples and add sugar/brown sugar until it's as sweet as you want it. For 8 small apples, I would suggest 1/4 C sugar.
Look how pretty!! I love how it's PINK.
Keep in mind that it will be pretty chunky, so if you like your apple sauce really smooth, you should run it through a food mill before you eat it.
