14 or so good size apples (should fill a large pan)
1/4 c sugar
2 t cinnamon
Peel, slice and core apples. Put in a regular large pan on the stove and let cook down (adding NO WATER, as they apples provide their own juices when cooking down) to a soft state. They will break apart when they are ready. Usually about 30 minutes on a low-medium heat. Once they have been cooked down, throw them in a blender until they are all completely pureed. Mix in the sugar and cinnamon. Eat fresh or it will freeze VERY WELL! I usually buy a huge case of apples when they are in season and do about 10 quarts of applesauce and freeze it. However, it doesn't last very long over here.
Note, you can use any type of apple you have/want, but our absolute favorite variety are Honeycrisp. You can make applesauce with as few of apples as you have also, just need to cut the ingredients. This is just a basic vague synopsis of how I do applesauce, but it really is a forgiving recipe.
