I picked up some local apples (can't remember if they were organic) recently and made two-apple applesauce last night. I could not stop myself from burning my tongue to try it immediately, or eating all of it! It was delicious on top of my homemade yogurt and I can't wait to make more.
I'd prefer to peel (it's not so bad once you get into the rhythm) as I don't want to include anything that may hamper my digestion (lots of constipation lately), so that doesn't matter to me, but I definitely want to try out different methods. Popping apples in the crock pot while I'm at work and coming home to applesauce would be amazing, but most of the methods I've seen do not require over 8 hrs to cook. Could be a good no-hassle weekend method, however.
What is applebutter, anyway?
