TPM Tidbit: Quick Applesauce
We love to eat applesauce with our pork. It’s also useful in baking from time to time. I always have apples in my house so I always make my own applesauce. I do this by simply peeling, coring and slicing apple into small ½” pieces. After cutting them up, I place 2-3 apples worth of pieces into a pyrex measuring cup (either my 2-Cup size or my 4-Cup size depending on how much I’m making) and microwave on high for about 4 minutes. The apples are then soft enough to pulse with my Immersion Blender. My favorite apples for making applesauce are galas because they are sweet and soften very well when cooked (golden delicious and fuji are close seconds). I don’t typically add anything to our applesauce since we all like it plain, but you could add sprinkle of Ground Cinnamonif you like. I can get about 1 cup of applesauce per 2 cups raw apple, which is about 2 apples.
