Applesauce, Honey (P, KLP)
Source: Canadian Living Magazine
Serves: 6-8

8 apples (McIntosh or Empire are recommended), 3 lb. (1.5 kg)
1 cup water or apple juice (250ml)
1/4 cup liquid honey (50ml)

Cut apples into quarters. With paring knife, cut out cores. Peel each quarter.

In large saucepan, bring apples and water to boil over medium heat; cover, reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until apples are mushy and puffy, about 25 minutes. Let cool.

With potato masher, mash apples until smooth; stir in honey. (Make ahead: refrigerate in airtight container for up to 5 days)

Variation: Rosy Honey Applesauce: For rosy applesauce, core but do not peel apples. Instead of mashing, press apple mixture through food mill or conical sieve to remove skins.

Poster's Notes:
Wouldn't this be amazing on turkey for the high holidays? Or even as a dessert, with fresh fruit and cookies!
