This applesauce takes 20 minutes to make, and finished with a lovely pink hue. The secret? Leave the skins on. Why not? The skins are good for you anyway. Ingredients:
- 3-5 pounds apples, washed
- 1 tsp salt
- maple syrup, to taste
- cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, to taste
Preparation: Remove apple flesh from cores in four large chunks. Place chunks in a food processor (half to 3/4 full at a time) and spin for 30 seconds to 1 minute per batch. Place all pureed apples and salt in a large, heavy-bottomed pot on the stove and simmer, stirring frequently for 10-15 minutes. Taste. If you desire additional sweetness, add maple syrup to taste. Finish with your favorite spices.
