Homemade Applesauce

Difficulty: **

Ingredients
5 lbs. of your favorite apples (golden delicious work best)
1 1/2 cups sugar

Equipment: A Food Strainer

1. Quarter apples and put them in a 6-qt. kettle and cover near the top with water.
2. Put burner on high until boiling and then turn to medium to simmer.
3. Cook for approximately 30-45 minutes. Remove from heat when apples are quite soft and mushy. Drain off excess liquid.
4. Put through the food strainer to remove skins, seeds, and core.
5. Place strained apples back in 6-qt. pan and add 1 and 1/2 cups sugar. Cook until sugar has dissolved.
6. Makes about 4 pints of applesauce.

**Tips: Can be placed in pint jars and frozen to preserve. Don't fill all the way to the top if freezing. If you don't have a food strainer, peel and core apples before cooking. Then run cooked, mushy apples through a food processer to liquify.
