Microwave Applesauce (Serves 4-6)

Never again would I make applesauce on my conventional range when the microwave does it so quickly and well. I have listed below a basic recipe. Adapt it to your usual method and amount of sugar and spice.

For quantity applesauce fill any 3-4 quart microwave-safe casserole half full of peeled and quartered apples. It is important to use a large casserole and not fill over half full to avoid having the applesauce boil over. Sprinkle with ascorbic acid fruit protector to retain snowy white applesauce. I don’t add water. Just cover and microwave on Full Power stirring every 5 minutes until tender. Mash with potato masher and add sugar. No commercial applesauce can measure up to homemade flavor.

6-8 medium cooking apples, peeled and quartered
1/2 cup water, if desired
1/3-1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, if desired

1. Combine apples and water in 2 quart microwave-safe casserole.

2. Microwave, covered, on full power 9-11 minutes or until apples are soft, stirring once or twice. Stir in sugar and cinnamon.
