Light the Lights-Day 7

russet applesApplesauce is part of many Hanukkah meals so I made a few batches during apple picking season to tuck away for the holidays.  I freeze my applesauce in small containers so I can always thaw just as much as I need. 

This year we picked Golden Russets and Roxbury Russets at Kimball Fruit Farm and these old varieties of apples made the most amazingly full-flavored apple sauce.  I also mixed some raspberry puree (from berries picked at Wright -Locke Farm in Winchester)  into one of the batches for a rose-colored sauce with a tart and fruity twist.   

My applesauce is made with peeled and cored apples, cut into chunks.  It is cooked slowly with water, a cinnamon stick, and a little sugar.
