The freshest flavors
Plus, organic Gala’s are only $1.99/lb right now! It’s the perfect time to stock up for juices or making applesauce. Here’s one of our favorite recipes (it’s easier than you think)…
9 c. peeled, cored & quartered tart, locally- grown apples
½ c. apple cider
1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
¼–½ c. maple syrup or brown sugar
1/8 tsp. sea salt
½ tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
1 tsp. unsalted butter (if pressure cooking)
- Combine apples and cider in large saucepan or Dutch oven. Bring to a boil over medium heat; turn heat to low, and simmer until apples are tender (about 20 minutes).
- After apples have become tender, add lemon juice, sugar, salt; simmer for 1 minute. Grate in nutmeg.
- Use fork or potato masher to break up apples.
NOTE: If using a food mill, remove apples after cooking in cider; put through food mill, using coarse screen; return to pan to cook for additional 1 minute.
To save time, use a pressure cooker!
Just bring apples, cider & 1 tsp butter up to high pressure. Turn off heat, let sit 10 min., then express remaining pressure. Remove lid and add lemon juice, sugar, salt and simmer 1 minute. Add nutmeg and mash.
