Most Delicious Apple (Pie) Sauce by quornflour

Ok, so I only going to share this because my dear friend Missy asked me to post some Thanksgiving, holiday, fall foods. So you can all thank her for this. Else it would have remained a secret for ever and ever.

Now, apple sauce is one of those things that is really quite easy to make. Take some fresh delicious apples, stick them in a pot, turn the heat on medium and let them slowly turn to mush. Easy and delicious.

This is not that apple sauce, this is some most delicious apple sauce that you might lose track of time and forget to make your gingersnaps…

You are going to need a giant bag of apples, like 12 quart bag worth of sauce or pie apples (the farmers market or grocer can tell you which ones are best a present) and a 10 quart pot. Basically, because the apples reduce so much having them start overflowing is not going to be an issue.

Cut the apples in quarters, you are going to use a ricer later on, so you can leave the seeds and skins on and put them in your pot with a ½ Cup of water to start the heating process.

Add:

  • 1 C candied ginger
  • 1 C brown sugar (packed)
  • 6 cinnamon sticks
  • ½ cup spiced rum (the alcohol will burn off if you are concerned about giving this to children, or you can just tell the kids it isn’t for them and they can just deal with that)
  • 1 C Amish Rolled salted butter… yes you read that right, butter.

Now, you do not necessarily want to just use any old butter, if you cannot find Amish butter, then Kerry Gold will suffice, though the Amish butter is the best, it is a wonder they do not all die off of heart disease on account of just how delicious it is.

On medium heat, let them cook down, keep an eye and must them down now and again until you can fit the lid on. Stirring occasionally, let them cook down.

Once they are mush, use a ricer to get out the giant chunks of things, really, you could also just throw it in the blender too.

I sent this to a friend of mine who opened it, “just to try a taste”, next thing she knew it was gone. I can tell you I was overjoyed at the end of a crap day to find the last jar in a pile of other goodness I Had canned, so can this and hide some, or use it as a gift, because seriously, it is some good stuff.
