Apple season means...applesauce!

Living in an apple orchard has it perks, especially this time of year.  We have a variety of apple that isn't that popular anymore, Gravensteins.  They're tart, crisp, and delicious right off the tree.  If you let them sweat (rest after being picked for a length of time) they sweat out some of the water and the sugars concentrate.  That's when they're PERFECT for apple pie, apple crisp, and my favorite...applesauce!  

The beauty of apple sauce with Gravensteins is all you have to do is peel, core, and COOK!
