I took apples - washed them until very shiny - cut them without peeling and then cooked them in a bit of water. Once they were cool enough to touch I put through my NEW XOXO food mill. I took that beautiful rosey applesauce and cooked to boiling with about 1/4 of sugar, teaspoon lemon and a teaspoon of cinnamon (optional).
Cool and then freeze up to 6 months (or enjoy right away like I did). You can canned them too. Enjoy
