The applesauce recipe that follows is very versatile, it's also delicious as a dessert too... just serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  

You can also use it as a base for an apple cobbler.  

It can also be used in a main dish, I originally got the recipe idea from a pork chop recipe (recipe is on my website [Link Removed]).  

In any case, it's very easy and absolutely delicious.

This is an adaptation of a number of recipes I found.  I adjusted it until I liked the consistency and flavor.  The recipe is quick and easy.

The recipe calls for Golden Delicious apples.  I tried it with Granny Smith apples with great success, I just upped the brown sugar to 1 cup.  I particularly liked the sweet and tart flavor.


All you need:  

6 Golden Delicious apples, cored and sliced
2 cups of apples juice
¾ cup brown sugar
1 cup golden raisins
2 tablespoons cornstarch
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg

All you need to do:  

Put the apple slices in a large pot.  Sprinkle the cornstarch on the apples...turn with a spoon to coat evenly.  Sprinkle the nutmeg and cinnamon on the apples... turn to coat evenly.

Add the remaining ingredients and cook over a medium high heat until mixture starts to bubble, turn heat down to medium and cover, stirring periodically.  Cook the apples until they are semi soft, about 10 minutes.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Store in the refrigerator.
