I’ve recently decided homemade apple sauce is the way to go. I received a bunch of apples from a co-worker. They were the standard red delicious variety, which Tommy doesn’t like to eat out of hand, so I decided to try my hand at making apple sauce out of them.
The first batch I made, I peeled all the apples and diced them to about 1×1 inch cubes, and using the crockpot, cooked them on high for a few hours. Once they looked good and cooked down, I used a potato masher to make it more of a sauce consistency. This method didn’t take all the lumps out, but I enjoyed the final result.
So much, that I ate both of the resulting jars in a few days. Although it only made two jars, because I only started with around eight apples, both jars were eaten very quickly.
