After making Martha's basic apple pie, I had an outrageous amount of apple filling stuff left over. Apparently, I got a bit carried away when peeling the apples.
It's probably because I use this:
It's an apple peeler/corer/slicer. I'm not sure what I did before it came into my life.
Anyways, I made homemade applesauce. I started by simmering the entire mixture for over an hour.
When the apples were nice and soft, I ran them through my food mill.
Strangely, what would have been enough filling for another entire apple pie made only 3 or so cups of applesauce.
I had a taste and it was extremely sweet. So sweet that I may use it for apple cookies or muffins or scones.
Or I might eat it straight out of the container. I like to have options here at TMI, you know?
