Sauce-Sational: An Experiment in Applesauce: Tolman Sweet

I’m going slightly out of order for my next apple in the Sauce-sational Applesauce Experiment.  I wanted to go to the Tolman Sweet since we’re running low and if my analysis seems like something you want to try – don’t wait too long.
003 The Tolman Sweet is a heirloom, antique variety that is very sweet, tender and rich.  This is probably the absolutely sweetest apple we have to offer at the orchard.  I haven’t heard of many other orchards that carry this particular variety so don’t hesitate to stop by for a sample.
After my gala experience I was sort of afraid to see what would happen with these SUPER sweet apples.
But, I peeled, cored and sliced them up in my apple machine and put them in the crock pot for the test.007It was definitely not the ‘prettiest’ apple sauce.  The apples did not really cook down too much either but it wasn’t a ‘hard’ chunky sauce either.  And then there is the flavor – and I just want to remind you here that I enjoy ‘sweet’ apples’ – WOW!  This was amazing!  I just LOVED the flavor!  The sweet did not get lost during the cooking at all.  It was missing the ‘depth’ that you get from the mix but it was such a good, rich sweet flavor that I’m going to forgive the sauce for that.  I put this one in a special container so that ‘mommy’ gets to enjoy it.
