Apple season is here. Now, I don’t have an applesauce masher. That’s just something my kitchen does not have space for right now. So I have to alter some recipes or make due with what I can fit in my tiny kitchen. I actually prefer this chunky applesauce to the smooth version.
2 pounds of apples preferably not granny smith peeled and cut into ½ inch cubes (4 apples)
½ Cup of water
½ Cup Sugar
½ Cup of Raisin
2 teaspoon of lemon zest
½ teaspoon of cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg
2 Tablespoons of Calvados (an apple brandy)

In a saucepan combine apples, water, sugar, raisins, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil and let simmer with lid for about 20 minutes, add the lemon zest and calvados and let cook for another 5 minutes. Let cool before serving. Best to let is settle for a day or so.

I served this with a stuffed pork roast.

  1. Hi Patty, I sat w/ your mother & dad at Mrs. Frost’s b-day party. Good to visit with them after too long an absence on my part. They report that you work hard w/ the recipes. I replied that you make it look easy!
    Continued good wishes, Mrs. Wynn
