"This applesauce is a pretty shade of pale pink because the apples are cooked in their skins."

  1. Place apples in a large pot with the sugar, water, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the apples are very soft and lose their shape, about 25 minutes.
  2. Remove the apples from the heat and allow to cool slightly. Puree apples in a food processor or food mill. If using the food processor, strain the apples through a sieve to remove the pieces of apple skin.
  3. Stir in the cinnamon and nutmeg. Serve at room temperature or refrigerate and serve cold.

It was great! Nothing beats fresh applesauce in the fall. I recommending cutting the sugar in half, though. It was just a little too sweet.

Absolutely Fantastic!!! I didn't even add the cinnamon and nutmeg. It didn't need it. And the sweetness is just perfect. We ate it warm right after I made it.

this was soo good. I did however only use 1/2 cup of sugar, which was just enough! Yummy!

I always have and always will cook the apples with their skins on and then put them through a foley mill to finish. It's the way my mother made it and I have never liked applesauce made without...

This is not my favorite applesauce recipe though it was acceptable. I reduced the sugar by half and it was still VERY sweet. I think the extra step with the skins was too much labor for no blush...

Great recipe! I actually use a variety of apples to achieve a more blushed look (and for taste). I only cook for about 15-20 and use my NutriBullet to puree, as we prefer a more solid texture. I...

I really recomend this for peolle who have kids!! Its really really awesome!!!

I love leaving the skins on when making applesauce. I did cut the sweetener, adding honey instead of sugar. I think real maple syrup would work well too.
