Sauce-Sational: An Experiment in Applesauce – Granny Smith

Next up on the Sauce-sational Applesauce Experiment is the Granny Smith.
Of course, I took a picture of the peeled/cored/sliced Granny Smith without the memory card in my camera – awesome.  One thing I want to point out is that they were very HARD.  A few times the suction came loose on my apple machine because I was pushing so hard to get the apple in.  Once the peeling, coring, slicing was done the apples stayed directly in their coil – definitely kept their shape.
001 This particular apple smelled REALLY GOOD while is was cooking.  A very pleasant apple aroma filled my kitchen.  I stirred the sauce around the hour mark and the apples were really firm.  At the 3 hour mark, you can see that the apples had cooked down quite well. 
Now this sauce was mouth puckering tart.  Definitely too tart for me but my daughter Cedi loved it.  I do think as far as a tart sauce goes it had better flavor than the NW Greening did.  I could definitely see how this mixed with some sweet apples would create some amazing sauce!
