SIMPLE APPLE SAUCE
8 to 10 medium apples (Gala or Winesap are good*)
One cup of sugar,
One-half teaspoon of nutmeg,
One-half teaspoon of cinnamon
One teaspoon of vanilla.
Wash apples and then cut in pieces and place in a saucepan and add three cups of water.
Cook until soft. If you want a smooth applesauce, then rub through a fine sieve. I prefer to leave it 'lumpy'. Add sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Once mixture is cooled, pour into jars and store in refrigerator.
*If red apples are used, this makes a most delicious pink-looking sauce. No need to peel apples.
