I had some apples I wanted to use up, and I found this recipe for homemade applesauce in The Pillsbury Cookbook (1995). I used 1/2 cup turbinado sugar, but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. This recipe actually calls for 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of sugar, but I thought 1/2 cup was sweet enough (add more sugar if you prefer). I learned something new...if you want a chunky applesauce, cook the water and sugar with the apples because most fruits keep their shape when cooked in a sugar-water mixture. They become saucelike when cooked in water (and you add the sugar after it's cooked down). Personally, I thought this applesauce was sweet like a dessert, but it's also quite delicious (and your house smells great). Who knew making applesauce could be so simple and delicious compared to the tasteless stuff they sell at the store?
