Homemade Applesauce

About 1/4 bushel of apples, peeled, cored, and sliced. 
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup apple juice
1/4 cup lemon juice

We were watching The Pioneer Woman on Food Network this morning, and she was making this applesauce, so I decided to give it a try. 

Fill a large pot with the cut apples. I did a variety of Macintosh and Ida Red apples. Add the apple juice, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Stir it and cook over medium heat for about 25 minutes. (Cover the pot while it cooks.) 

Stir the apples occasionally while they cook down. 

When the apples are done cooking, place them in a food processor. Pulse them until you reach your desired consistency. 

Store in the refrigerator. 

I then used some of the applesauce to make applesauce doughnuts and apple pancakes...Recipes coming soon!
