Pink Lady & Pineapple Applesauce

Introduction

Introduction

       If you are a fan of pineapple, this recipe should scratch your fancy! A freshly cut pineapple is a joy to eat, and blending it with an apple of your choice is a delight. No sweetners were added here. This time around I could not find fresh pineapple at the store, so I used Dole's canned pineapple chunks. Shame on me. But, oh, my ... have at it ... ! A dash of rum extract makes the flavor nicely complex.

Preparation

Preparation

  1. Core and chop the apples into 3/4″ chunks. DO NOT PEEL. 1
  2. In a medium Dutch oven or a 3 to 4 Qt. stainless steel pot, combine the apple and pineapple chunks, pineapple juice and salt. Cover and bring the mixture to a low simmer over medium heat.
  3. Continue simmering, stirring frequently, until the apples are tender and almost soft (do not overcook) ― about 12 minutes.
  4. Remove pot from the heat. For chunky applesauce, use a potato masher or hand immersion blender and break it up to your desired consistency. For smooth applesauce, puree it with a hand immersion blender or in your food processor.
  5. Taste …
  6. For sweeter applesauce, stir in honey as desired.
  7. Let it cool uncovered for 30 minutes to room temperature before jarring the applesauce and storing in the refrigerator. Store in a Ball or glass mason jar or other sealed container.
  8. Applesauce will keep well in the refrigerator for about 1 week, or several months in the freezer.

1 Ok, if you must, go ahead and peel, but don't blame me for ...
