Quite a few of my apples were not lookin too hot.
Look at this one...and he was one of many sad lookin apples.
So I decided it was time to make applesauce. I have heard of making applesauce without peeling the apples and so I thought I'd give it a shot.
Just had to wash up the apples good and cut out the bad spots.
Then I just used my handy apple slicing tool, to cut them up and get rid of the core. This was so quick compared to the usual process of peeling and cutting.
I added the juice of a lemon for flavour and to keep the sauce a bit lighter in colour.
After I put my big batch of apples, lemon juice, and a half cup of water in a large pot, I put the lid on and let it cook over medium heat until the apples were all soft.
I guess some would use a food mill to make it into the sauce, but I just poured the soft apples into my colander and used a wooden spoon to squish through to separate the peels. Very easy and it took much less time then if I had peeled all them apples.
I do declare, I like the unpeeled applesauce version. Easy, Healthy, and Thrifty. I like this combination!
