HOMEMADE APPLESAUCE

I think this recipe is from an old magazine but I am not sure.

6 large Granny Smith and/or McIntosh apples
1/2 cup apple cider or juice
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
dash of nutmeg

Peel and core apples; cut into chunks. In a 3-quart saucepan combine the apple chunks and the cider or juice. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until the apple chunks are very tender. Stir in the sugar and the cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook 2 minutes longer. Mash while still in the pot or cool then puree in a food processor. Cool; store in clean jars. Refrigerate for up to two weeks. Add 1/4 cup old fashion red hot cinnamon candy drops, if desired when you simmer the apples.

Yield: 4 cups
