I often use a variety of apples when I make apple sauce. Sometimes I just do enough to fill a couple of mason jars, but in the fall I love to make a lot and keep in the freezer.
Peel the apples with a potato peeler or a paring knife. Cut the apples in quarters and use a paring knife to cut out the centers. Cut the apples in small pieces and put in a medium/large sauce pan. Add 4 T of water and cook the apples on medium/low about 15 minutes or until the apples are soft. Stir occasionally. Put in a blender and mix on high for a couple of seconds. You can also use a fork or potato masher. Pour the apple sauce into mason jars or plastic containers. When cool, put in fridge or freezer.
I normally don’t add anything to the apple sauce, but sometimes I sprinkle cinnamon on top before serving.
