Homemade Applesauce

By Nikki Willhite

www.allthingsfrugal.com

Anyone with fruit trees, or who has access to freshly picked apples has probably tried their hand at making homemade applesauce. 

The key to making good applesauce is to choose the right kind of apples.  You want to make applesauce with a tart apple as opposed to a sweet apple like Red Delicious.

Some good varieties of apples to use are Golden Delicious,  McIntosh,  Gravenstein and Pippin.

Another secret is to taste your sauce.  Different varieties of apples have varying degrees of sweetness.  This will affect the amount of sugar you need to add to the sauce.

Here are a couple recipes to try.

Honey Applesauce

4 cups apples, chopped
3 Tbsps. of honey
1/2 inch water
cinnamon
 
Boil chopped apples in water until they are soft.  Add honey, and then mash until the consistency of applesauce.  Add cinnamon to taste.
 
 
Brown Sugar Applesauce
 
4 apples
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cups water
cinnamon
 
Put all the ingredients in a pan and boil until soft.  Then mash.
 
You can freeze or can your applesauce.  If you decide to can it, be sure and follow all the safety directions to do it properly.
 
You just can't go wrong making applesauce.  If you make it, and you don't like the flavor- you can use it to flavor your baked goods.
