For those of you in attendance at our recent meeting with Borough President Gale Brewer, you will remember that she promised to share her celebrated Apple Sauce Recipe. It has gained notoriety far and wide and – hold on to your toque! – we now have the recipe for Tilden members.
Core 1 pound of apples (peel if desired)) and chop and slice.
Combine apples with a cinnamon stick and 1/4 cup of water in a saucepan (optional 1-2 tablespoons of sugar).
Bring to a boil then reduce to simmer, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, until tender.
Remove from heat and remove the cinnamon stick. Stir in juice from 1/2 lemon.
“Applesauce a la Gale” keeps for 5 days in the fridge or can be frozen for two months.
