Makes about 6 cups
- 6 large, tart apples (gravenstein, pippins, Granny Smith, etc.)
- 1 cup undiluted apple juice concentrate
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
For chunky applesauce, peel apples, then core and dice. Place in a large pan. Add apple juice concentrate, then cover and cook over low heat, stirring often, until apples are soft. Mash slightly with a fork if desired, then stir in cinnamon. Serve hot or cold.
For smoother applesauce, cut apples into quarters and remove cores. Chop finely in a food processor. Transfer to a pan and add apple juice concentrate and cinnamon. Cover and cook, stirring often, over low heat until tender, about 15 minutes.
