|This is a Cortland Apple. It has a red |
peel and a very white center.
This is such a healthy nutritious fruit or as my kids call it dessert. I prefer to freeze mine verses can. Pull it out a little before you wish to enjoy, it is a frozen applesauce slushy and we serve it as dessert.
|Each bag here is 1 bushel.|
To me cooking is not just about cooking, its about memories, remembering the old and making new. Applesauce is something I used to do with my mom and Grandma, now I do it with my daughter and friends. I have shared my simple sauce with many who have now made this an annual tradition. The smell of the apples cooking down takes me back to a place in childhood that I loved and will always remember.
|On a side note this is a fun apple craft |
Core and slice apples. Place into a pan and place on stovetop. Add about a half and inch of water to the pan. Turn your burner onto medium heat and cook until apples are soft and mushy. Place cooked apples in a food mill, ricer or colander. Applesauce will come out the bottom and *discard the rest. Add sugar to your liking.
*We raise laying hens and they absolutely go wild over the apple peel scraps. Or if you do not have chickens it is perfect for the compost pile.
