>>> This year, my apple tree is producing a massive amount of apples. Today's project was about figuring out what I am going to do with them all. Making a large batch of applesauce came to mind<<

8Lbs tart apples
1/2 cup water
1¼ cup brown sugar
1½ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
Lemon zest from 2 lemons

Core and quarter the apples. Place in a large heavy duty saucepan with a closely fitting lid. Add water and cook over medium-low heat for 50 minutes or until the apples are very soft.

Pass the cooked apples through a food mill and add the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add the lemon zest.
