It's applesauce making season! Here's my recipe (some people say it tastes just like apple pie):
Peel, core, and chop 3 pounds of apples (I like to use macintosh) and place in a large saucepan or dutch oven.
Add 1 c. water, 1/2 to 2/3 c. sugar, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, and 1/8 tsp. nutmeg.
Bring to a boil, and simmer, covered for 8-10 minutes.
Stir occasionally to break up apples.
Process in food processor or blender until mixture is the desired texture.
Three pounds of apples yields approximately 1 1/2 quarts of applesauce.
Applesauce freezes well, or if you're brave, you can try canning it.
