Homemade apple sauce!

Yum-O! Actually, I should use some Alton Brown saying, since this was the best we could come up with from one of his recipes. It's actually pretty simple.


1 c unfiltered apple juice (or apple cider)
6 medium-sized apples (3 tart, 3 sweet)
2 tbs butter
3 tbs honey
2 tbs cognac
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Peel, core, quarter the apples, add everything in a sealable container... shake really hard. Microwave for 10 minutes. Go at it with a stick blender.

Serve with a piece of cheddar cheese or ice cream. Ice cream == way better.

So the problem that I had with the recipe is that the intermotron wasn't working so we had to make up the recipe from memory-ish. It worked out okay, albeit a little watery. We used 1.5 c, not 1 c of cider, 2/3 shot of cognac (although, could that be 2 tbs?), and 1 tsp cinnamon. If I could do it all over again, I'd use less cider, 1 tsp. cinnamon, and I'd seriously reconsider the cognac because it smelled like death. Or maybe this is my disposition against liquor speaking.

And no, because I use big shots, so 2/3 of a shot is 1oz (3 tbs).
