Ingredients

10 apples 1.8 kg
1 1/2 cup water, approximately 375 mL
1/3 cup sugar [optional] 70 g

Before you start

A food mill will be very useful to purée the apples, without having to peel them first.

Method

  1. Cut the apples into quarters without peeling them. Put them in a saucepan.
  2. Pour about 1-2 cm of water in the bottom of the saucepan and add sugar (optional). Cover and cook over low heat about 10 min, until the apples are softened completely.
  3. Purée the apples using a food mill. Let the purée cool down and serve cold or at room temperature.

Remarks

The compote keeps up to 10 days in the refrigerator or up to 4 months in the freezer.

**Great for Pressure Cookers** My notes, thought I'd share Cortland, Spy or Spartan apples > Seasonal Quarter apples and add to pressure cooker Brown sugar- one Tbsp per 4 lbs of apples Cinnamon- 1-2 tsp 1/2 to 3/4 cup water (depending on pressure cooker size size) Pressure cooker- 4 minutes on high pressure Quick release, no problem with apples being suddenly decompressed, it's apples sauce Food Mill - use medium screen Press cooked apple through food mill, skin, cores seeds and all. Done! If you don't have a food mill use a plastic spatula and press the cooked mix through a metal mesh sieve. Saves on the peeling and coring...

Instead of using a food mill, I found it easier to peel the apples first and then puree them after it was cooked in a food processor. I tried it without the sugar, but unless the apples are on the sweeter side, it tastes better with some kind of sweetener (I like using Sucanat or Brown Sugar better). Also, cooking it on low heat doesn't work well and the cooking time is too short. I had to turn the heat to medium low and cook it until the apples were soft.

Super quick and super easy. I usually don't like Macintosh apples at all, but I DO know they cook the best so I used those. I put in the sugar and the sweetness is just right. Someone mentioned adding a cinnamon stick and I think I will try that next time...:) Amended: I put cinnamon this time and instead of sugar, honey. It was even better! I also put less of the liquid in to make it a little less runny. I strained out the skin and it was super smooth.

It's applesauce. It's as good as the apples that go into it! The ones I chose this time (Fuji) turned out kindof bland, so I'll try another type of apple next time.

I found MacIntosh apples worked better than Honey Crisp. The Honey Crisp took a lot longer to work. Courtland apples would also probably work well. I didn't use much sugar at all.

Super easy and way better than store bought! Great way to use all those cheap autumn apples. Its so fast using a vegetable mill and not having to peel away all those skins! I added a cinnamon stick, split in two (much prefer it to ground cinnamon). I cut the sugar by half and still found it too sweet - next time I'll only use a quarter or none at all.
