If you like smooth applesauce, run the end result through a food mill.


  1. 1Peel, core and coarsely chop the apples.
  2. 2Combine the chopped apples, sugar and pumpkin pie spice in a 6-cup glass bowl. Stir to mix. Cover with plastic wrap and set in a microwave oven. Cook with 650 watts for 5 minutes.
  3. 3Remove from the oven, uncover and stir in butter and optional brandy. Recover and cook until fruit is completely soft, about 3 minutes.
  4. 4Remove from the oven, uncover and mash mixture with a potato masher. Let cool to room temperature, then chill. Serve with roast pork or pork chops, or with cookies for dessert.
