Diva's Easy (Pink!) Applesauce


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.
