RECIPE: Homemade Applesauce with Cinnamon and Rum

This is a recipe that's perfect for Thanksgiving and other holidays. It comes originally from a caterer near where I live in Connecticut -- the Cantering Caterer.

Homemade applesauce is the simplest thing on the planet to make! Your house will smell amazing for an hour after this comes off the stove!

Start with 8 cored apples if possible, do a mix like Gala, Macintosh, Granny Smiths, whatever is in season, always trying to get green and red in there. Cut them into chunks and place in a saucepan. Add a couple of inches of water, just enough to almost cover the apples. Then add 1 cup of rum and a dash of cinnamon. Boil until soft, strain, and put the whole mix into a food processor. Process until it reaches the desired texture. It's good to leave it a bit lumpy. This will ensure that some of the great colors from the skins are visible. If you process too much, the color will mix and you will lose the great visual effect. Serve warm or cold.

No shortage of rum down here. I may try this since the alcohol would be boiled out. Thanks for posting this.

RE: RECIPE: Homemade Applesauce with Cinnamon and Rum

I have never made applesauce with the peel still on. What does the peel do to the texture? Is the peel the reason that it is processed in the food processor?

I'm thinking this would save a lot of time!!

Have made quite a bit of applesauce already, but still have lots of apples and this sounds so good, think I'll have to try some. Thanks

RE: RECIPE: Homemade Applesauce with Cinnamon and Rum

I was wondering about the texture of the apple peels too. I think I'd like to try this with peeled apples, and just mash them in the pan as I usually do when making fresh apple sauce. I love the addition of rum! This sounds devine!

RE: RECIPE: Homemade Applesauce with Cinnamon and Rum

I make apple sauce with the peel. I just use a hand held blender and whiz for a few minutes to break up the peel. Works great! I figure you get nutrients from the peel so why not use it? Marg
