Apple Sauce Home Made

Ingredients

16 apples (use sweet apples rather than granny smith)
1 teaspoon lemon zest
brown sugar (as needed)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
pinch of nutmeg (optional)

Preparation

1
In a saucepan, combine apples, juice and lemon zest. Cook over medium heat until the apples are soft. (15-30 minutes depending on how many apples and how small you chopped the apples)
2
Remove from heat and let cool.
3
Using a potato masher, or a food mill, mash the apples until desired consistency. We like If you like a chunky apple sauce the potato masher works fine. If you like a smother applesauce then the food mill will be the tool to use.
4
Taste the apple sauce and add any sugar and spices as desired.
5
Once you make your own applesauce you will never go back to buying apple sauce off the supermarket shelf.
