What do you do when life gives you mealy apples?
Make apple sauce!
Kreck here. I don't know much, but I know how to make apple sauce. It's become a weekly ritual for me. All you have to do is get a bunch of apples, peel them, cut them up into small pieces and throw them in a pot with some water (a cup?) and lemon juice (a couple of tablespoons?). I also add cinnamon (a tablespoon?) and today I added a handful of strawberries that were just about ready to leave this world. The strawberries added a really nice flavour and colour to the apple sauce.
It cooked for about an hour, and I mashed up the apples as they softened. You could also put the sauce in a food processor if you like it really smooth. That's all there is to it!
Why not use it as a sugar substitute when you're baking?
