Chunky Apple Sauce

Thursday night I made applesauce. We love applesauce. It goes great with pork, ham, and lamb. It starts with 8 lbs of apples on my ancient rusty kitchen scale.

My favorite combo for applesauce is the McIntosh and the Macoun. It’s a little early for Macouns, so we picked Gravensteins this time. I like to have a mushier apple and a chunkier, more solid apple for texture. Both also need to have a good flavorful taste when cooked.
