I've made the Chunky Applesauce recipe from this book many times over the past several weeks. It's delicious and pretty basic (apples, apple juice, brown sugar and cinnamon), so I've been experimenting with it as the mood strikes -- using different kinds of apples, substituting cider for juice, ditching the brown sugar entirely. This is the way I made it this morning, and I think this is the best batch yet (I share because I love):
Peel, core, and dice 8 apples (I used Empires because they break down so well when cooked) and 2 pears. Toss into a big pot with about 1 cup of pear juice. Bring to a simmer, then cover and cook for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally to break everything down into mush. Bear in mind that the final product will still be somewhat chunky, unless you want to run it through the blender or something. Once everything is good and soft, remove from the heat and stir in however much cinnamon it takes to make you happy. Any remaining juices will thicken as everything cools. That's all there is to it, and oh my god is it delicious. The pears totally make it. Plus, your house will smell wonderful.
