A recipe is merely words on paper; a guideline, a starting point from which to improvise. It cannot pretend to replace the practiced hand and telling glance of a watchful cook. For that reason, this is also an account of what happens when I make this dish, so you’ll understand each step. Of course when you cook it once, it becomes yours, so personalize it a bit. Add more of an ingredient you like or less of something you don’t like. Try substituting one ingredient for another. Remember words have no flavour, you have to add your own!
In the fall, when apples are in peak season, I always make a giant batch or two of applesauce and freeze it. It’s so easy that my son Gabe helps out! All winter long it reminds my family of our favourite season. Any apple makes great applesauce but my favourites are Macintosh and Golden Delicious.
