German Style Applesauce


What makes this applesauce special is that it is pureed so smooth it is almost like cream in texture. You will find this kind of applesauce in pumps at vendors in Germany that serve potato pancakes

8 medium sized apples (3 to 4 lbs)
1 cup water
3 / 4 cup sugar


vanilla extract

I like to peel the apples and keep the peelings, either to boil for juice or for pectin,
or you can fry them, and serve as a dessert.

slow and steady.

Chop the peeled apples in small chunks.
Simmer the apples
Strain off the water into a measuring cup, but keep it. This makes a nice drink or you can use it for pectin. To puree the applesauce, put just a few chunks into the blender at a time, to get a proper "whirlpool effect" and then add a few more at a time. This is about as big a batch as I do in the blender, then put it to a bowl and start another.

Here are two close ups of how smooth the sauce looks.

This is nice served with Potato Pancakes
