Lynn always complains that the apples in Texas aren’t crunchy enough. It seems when you’re from a state where apple pickings are how you have fun you have pretty high standards. To appease her I thought we’d take the “mushy” apples and put them into something where that’s a plus. Voila…applesauce.
2 of your favourite apples, peeled, and cored
1 strip lemon peel
3/8 c water
1/8 c sugar
1/2 t cinammon
1. Cut the apples into 1/2 inch chunks
2. Put everything in a pot and set to boil
3. Cook until the apples are soft, 15-20 minutes
4. For chunky style, mash it all with a potato masher. For smooth run it through a food processor.
