View Full Version : need help with applesauce
12-20-2009, 06:34 PM
I just made Alissa's recipe for apple sauce, but I am not a fan of it's consistency. Anyone have any advice of something I can pour it over so it's not so 'mush-like?' I was thinking a bowl of raisins or something like that, but I would prefer to stay away from too many dried fruits, nuts, and seeds. Other ideas with what to do with the apple sauce?

I mix apples with bananas to make a pudding. You can also add it to chia seed gel.

I've never made RAW Apple Sauce but isn't all Apple Sauce mushy? Have you ever used a Spoon and scraped the Apple as you eat it? I have, I guess I was bored with chewing or something. Hope you find your remedy.

Yes I guess it is all mushy. I used to mix my applesauce with cheerios and loved it. This morning I put it in a bowl of bananas with some pureed strawberries on top. I guess I just used other things to cover up the apple sauce's mushy-ness, but either way, it was deeelicious.

Raw applesauce is my fave. If you want more than mush you could add apples chopped very small. Also walnuts are good in it too.

You could spread it out on a dehydrator sheet at 135 for an hour, then down to 105 for four or five hours. Stir it occasionally. this takes out some of the moisture.
I've been thinking about making apple butter this way, just haven't gotten around to it. Of course, you'd need to lea ve it in the D a lot longer to get apple butter.
another thought, which I haven't tried, is to slice the apples and put them in the D to remove some of the moisture, THEN put them in your blender.
BTW, if you don't have one, you simply MUST get one of those apple/peeler-corers. They're fantastic. I can make raw applesauce to feed a family in five min.
