Rosy applesauce

Tinted a pretty pink by leaving the apple peels on while the sauce is cooking, this applesauce is so easy you definitely wonít want to wait for next Chanukah to make it again.

8 medium red apples
1/2 cup (125 mL) water or apple juice
1/4 cup (50 mL) granulated sugar (or less, to taste)

  1. Core the apples, but donít peel. Cut into chunks and place in a large saucepan. Add water or apple juice and place over medium heat. Cover the saucepan and let the apples steam until soft, stirring occasionally. As they soften, mash the apple chunks with a potato masher to break them up. Continue to cook, stirring frequently until apples are cooked into a thick sauce. Total cooking time will be about 15 minutes. Taste and add sugar, if necessary.
  2. Using a food mill or a strainer, strain the applesauce by pressing through the holes to remove the peels. Serve warm or chill.
Makes about 2-1/2 cups (625 mL) applesauce.
