The ingredient list is very fluid as it depends on the amount of apples you use.
My cooking time was 4 hours - because I like to add a lot of water and then slowly boil it out.
If you can baby sit the stove and stir every few minutes you can cook with less water and a faster period of time.
I placed the peeled apples in a lemon water bath to keep them from turning brown.
Using a corer saves a ton of time!
Also when I added the whole spices I locked them in a tea strainer
so that I could easily remove them after cooking.
What it looked like half way done
and then all the way done.
I like a very fine sauce as I love to use it as an ice cream topping!
Note: This does use candy that has a wax coating. When you stir make sure to scrape the sides and a filmy top is to be expected. It stirs in easily, trust me its worth it!
And there you have it home made applesauce from home grown apples!
Sorry I have been gone for a while - my camera broke and I just got my new one!
