This applesauce has a deep, rich flavor reminiscent of caramel, while still maintaining a bit of the bite of a fresh apple. It is so rich and flavorful that you'll think you're eating a melted caramel apple!
Wash, core and quarter apples. Retain cores to make apple cider vinegar - tutorial is linked in the article.
If I'm using this caramel applesauce as a snack food for the kids, I add less succanat or raw sugar to reduce the sweetness.
If I'm going to use this as an ice cream topper or as a sweet add-on to our Rosh Hashanah latkes, then I add a bit more sugar to make that caramel flavor pop. Either way, this caramel applesauce is truly tasty.
We're not Jewish, but we have so much fun celebrating this time of year along with our Jewish friends. And any excuse to make this caramel applesauce and latkes is happily made use of. Shanah Tovah, my friends!
