the summer rambos are here! i bought some at the farmers' market and made the first batch ~
the grandchildren love, love, love the homemade applesauce......my mother has been making
it for them for years.
it is so simple......just cut the apples up into quarters (discard core) and throw in a large pot
with water covering the bottom. bring to a boil and then turn heat down and let cook til
apples are soft and mushy. this is when i stir the apples a bit and taste test to see if i need
to add a small amount of sugar.....if you do want to add sugar, now is the time as it will
incorporate well with the hot apples......then i put it all through a colander to strain it (the
apple peel remains behind and is discarded)......you could also use a food mill but i just
always do the colander since that's how my mother does it.
the applesauce freezes beautifully and the children enjoy it so much all winter!
