Equipment

  • Microwave
  • Foley mill
  • 2 large mixing bowls

Ingredients

  • 6-8 medium Macoun apples can substitute Cortland or Macintosh
  • cup water
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar optional
  • 1 lemon cut into ¼" slices
  • ground cinnamon to taste

Instructions

  • Cut the apples. Wash but do not peel apples. Cut 2-3 apples into quarters, removing the core, then place apple chunks in a large microwave-safe bowl. Add 2 lemon slices, a sprinkle of ground cinnamon, then pour 1-2 Tbsp water right on top.
  • Cook the apples. Microwave on high for 5 minutes, then stir. Cook an additional 5 minutes on high power. Repeat with remaining apples.
  • Process the apples. Discard lemon slices, then use a slotted spoon to transfer cooked apples into a foley mill fitted with small-size holes. A slotted spoon is helpful, as it strains excess water. Process the apples, which should turn into sauce easily. As apple skin accumulates and blocks the holes, remove and throw away. Repeat with remaining apples.
  • Optional: add sugar. Add sugar to taste -- make sure to try the cinnamon applesauce before adding any in case your apples are sweet enough without! Then add a few tablespoons at a time, taste, and reassess. Cover, then cool in a refrigerator until needed.

Notes

  • To freeze: store in small containers, then freeze for up to 6 months. To defrost, thaw overnight in a fridge.
