Yield: 4 Servings
|10||To 12 medium apples|
|1||To 2 cups cranberry juice|
|2 tablespoons||Sugar, or up to 1/4 cup|
|If you want it sweet|
|¼||To 1/2 cup dried|
|"craisins" (sweetened dried|
Wash the apples and chop them up without peeling. (What about the seeds?) Squeeze lemon juice over them as you cut them.
Put apples in crockpot with cranberry juice -- use 1 cup if you want the applesauce thick, more if you want it thin. Stir in sugar to suit your taste.
Let apples stew on low for 6-8 hours. About an hour or two before serving, stir in cranberries or craisins. (If you use craisins, use less sugar.)
The applesauce is a very pretty pink and the cranberries & juice give it a nice zing.
As you can see, the recipe is simple and forgiving -- let the apples stew a little longer or a little less - the longer you stew them the mushier the applesauce will be. It warms up nicely, or you can eat it cold.
(Sounds like it would have to be put through a Foley food mill, to get rid of seeds and skin.)
