- 12 large apples
- Terhune Orchards Apple Cider
Core and quarter 12 large apples. Any kind of Terhune Orchards’ apples make wonderful applesauce. You need not peel the apples. Cooking them with the skins on adds more trace vitamins to your applesauce. Place apples in a deep saucepan. Add enough Terhune Orchards Apple Cider to cover the bottom of the pan 1″ or so. Cover the pan with a lid. Cook over medium heat until the apples are soft. Put the softened apples through the food mill or sieve. If you don’t have either, peel the apples before cooking them and stir them vigorously once they are soft. If your sauce seems too watery, cook it down a bit; if it is too thick, add more cider. If you like, add a bit of ground cinnamon. This should make 2 quarts of delicious applesauce.
