Sauce-Sational: An Experiment in Applesauce - Fireside

002Next up to talk about it the Fireside.  Now, the Fireside’s are big apples and are a bit more tricky to get through my peeler, corer, slicer but I still managed! 
The Fireside is a very large fruit with sweet, pleasant flavor and fine-grained flesh good for fresh eating, salad, and baked apples. Good storage life. 014
I cooked the apples down in the miniature slow cooker for 3 hours.  It was a sweet, chunky sauce.  I did like it better than the Gala as far as flavor goes.  I thought there was a lot of great flavor at first but it died off.  It was decent but I could see that would add a fantastic sweetness if it were mixed with another apple or two.
