I love apple orchards. In fact they are one of my favorite places on earth.
Someday I dream of owning one of my own. I’ll have rows and rows of apples.
All sorts. Honeycrisp. Jonagold. And of course, Connell’s.
We’ll have parties to celebrate harvests. And sell every kind of apple creation.
I’ve been perfecting my recipes for cider donuts and apple turnovers.
But until then, I have the applesauce recipe mastered.
Orchard Apple Sauce
- 6 medium sized apples
- 1 c dark brown sugar
Peel, core, and dice apples. Add apples to a pot and cover with water. Bring water to a boil and then reduce heat to allow apples to simmer. Check on them every 15 minutes or so, or in between eating previously mentioned donuts and turnovers.
After 30-45 minutes, add brown sugar and cinnamon to taste. Remove apples from heat and mash them to your desired consistency. Pull out your Ball jars and get canning, or sit down to a nice bowl of warm apple sauce. Vanilla ice cream optional, but recommended.
