If you like smooth applesauce, run the end result through a food mill.
- 3 apples
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tablespoon butter, cut into small pieces
- 2 teaspoons apple brandy, optional
1Peel, core and coarsely chop the apples.
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.
3Remove from the oven, uncover and stir in butter and optional brandy. Recover and cook until fruit is completely soft, about 3 minutes.
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.
