I love this applesauce. You can make it as smooth as you like. I break the cinnamon stick in half & also sprinkle some ground cinnamon into the mix (I love cinnamon). It's so easy to make and so delicious.


3-4 lbs peeled, cored & quartered apples (use good cooking apples like Fuji, Macintosh, Golden Delicious, Gravenstein or Granny Smith)
4 strips of lemon peel
Juice of 1 lemon (about 3-4 Tbsps)
3" cinnamon stick
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
Up to 1/4 cup of white sugar
1 cup of water
1/2 tsp salt

Put all ingredients into a large pot. Cover. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer 20-30 minutes.

Removefrom heat. Remove cinnamon sticks & lemon peels. Mash with potato masher. Ready to serve, either hot or refrigerated. Delicious with vanilla ice cream or vanilla yogurt. Freezes easily, lasts up to 1 year in a cold freezer.
