11/24/12 8 apples made 1 mason jar worth. gala, fuji, cortland
- Apples, variety
- This time, I used 10 apples (minus a slice or two) - 5 Gala, 5 McIntosh. Peel, slice, core, and roughly chop. This is the most time/effort consuming part.
- Heat with cover until simmering. Reduce to low and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until mushy (about 20 minutes).
- Mash with a potato masher or fork, for chunky texture. Blend/mix for a fine/smooth texture.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg.
Recommended apple types: Gala, McIntosh, Cortland, Fuji, Winesap, Honeycrisp, Pink Lady, Delicious, Jonathan, Mutsu/Crispin, Braeburn
NOT recommended: Granny Smith, Rome, Jersey Mac
Add other spices to taste: cardamom, allspice, cloves, ginger, ...
Put in a slow cooker and it will "mash" itself.
