I bought a bag of McIntosh apples on Wednesday, and while the flavor was delicious, the texture was a bit mealy for my liking. What should I do?
Yeah, I should probably betray my baby sister.
I promise I made enough to save some in the freezer!
- 12 McIntosh apples
- 2 cups water
- 3 Tbs. brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- pinch of nutmeg
Peel, core, and coarsely chop apples. Place in a saucepan and cover with water. Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Simmer, covered, on low heat for 20 minutes. Remove lid and cook on low for 15 more minutes, or until enough liquid has evaporated and the applesauce is the desired consistency.
Whisk to remove chunks, or puree in a blender for very smooth applesauce. Serve warm or chilled.
