(Sept. 29, 2012) When I lived in Quebec, before I moved to Alberta I used to go apple picking and make apple sauce. Now that I’m back, I’ve been doing the same and now that I blog I thought I could share with you all It’s pretty simple and I’m pretty sure it could also be made in a crock pot.
- 17 medium apples (I used McIntosh)
- 1 cup of water
- 1 cup of packed brown sugar
- 1 cup of of white sugar (skip if your apples are sweet, mine are tart)
- 1 tbsp of cinnamon
- Peel and cut apples in chunks (make sure no hearts or seed are left in)
- Put everything in a big pot or crock pot on low heat
- Stir to coat everything, stir once in a while.
- After 1-2 hours your apples should be soft enough to mash (with a metal potato masher so not to melt a plastic one), mash directly in the pot, leaving apple chunks.
- Leave on low heat for another hour.
- Store in mason jars as recommended by the instructions (normally it’s to boil the new jars and lids, fill and close)
- Date your jars and voilà!
- You can keep them in a cool place or in the fridge for over 6 months, never lasts that long here.
When he got up, he immediately said he wanted a toast with apple compote when he came down, so before the 1/2 jar hit the fridge all 3 of us had a toast with it, which is also why it’s not in the picture
Check again for a different option coming soon, which will have a little twist to the traditional recipe
