Saucesational – An Experiment in Applesauce: Paulared

Today I’m taking a look at a fantastic early apple.  It typically ripens around August 15th and is one of the first apples we have available to you each apple season.  Of course, this year, we started picking our Paulareds at the end of July.  They are a wonderful early season apple but they do not keep well.  We are nearing the very end of our Paulareds.  They’re still good – but a bit softer than they were in the beginning of their season.  If you LOVE the Paulareds but don’t like soft apples – let me tell you – they make an excellent sauce.
Last week I took the apples and peeled/cored/sliced them and put them in the pot just like I’ve done before.  About 2 hours later I came and stirred them and the sauce looked perfect.  Not completely mushed down but close.  When I tasted it it was a wonderful, sweet, apple-y tasting sauce.  Definitely a winner in my book.
