More apples equals Applesauce.
I supposed this is odd for someone who has been baking as long as I have, but this is the first time I’ve attempted to make applesauce.
I used a super simple recipe from my very well worn copy of Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book (mine is a soft cover – printed in 1989). I used 9 McIntosh apples (see blog post below) and a 2/3 cup of sugar (which, personally, was a little sweet). I also opted for the ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon, and blended the sauce rather than mashing it.
We enjoyed this served over vanilla ice cream, warm and cold. Though I thought I had enough to make some Apple Spice Cupcakes, I didn’t act quickly enough and all the sauce was consumed (with or without the ice cream). Oh, well, there is always next time…
