9-10   apples peeled and cut into eighths.

1/2 Cup apple juice                                               Check the updates below.

1/4 - 1/2 Cup sugar

¾ tsp. Cinnamon

you could also add ¼ tsp. of nutmeg or cloves or both…
  OH, also some Fruit Fresh to keep the apples fron turning brown while you are peeling them all....

Place apples and juice into a 2 quart casserole. Cover and microwave for 7 minutes (if you want smooth and use a blender) or 10 minutes (if you want chunky and use a potato masher).


Put apples and remaining ingredients into blender and mix until smooth.


Use a potato masher to mash apples. Mix in remaining ingredients.

Place applesauce in plastic zip lock bags and freeze until ready to use. Makes 6-7 cups

UPDATE - August 2008
