Saucesational: An Experiment in Applesauce–Sansa

IMG_1790One of my very favorite early apples is the Sansa.  It’s one of the newer varieties we’ve added to our orchard in these recent years.  As soon as I tasted my first one I knew others would like them as well. 
They are sweet, hard and crunchy. 
It was time to try them in sauce – normally, I’ve found that sweeter apples don’t make very good sauce.
Well – I peeled, cored and sliced the apples and put them in my mini crock pot to cook.  They cooked quickly down on low heat to a nice chunky sauce with some smooth mixed in.  When I tasted it I was surprised!  It was sweet with no hint of tart but I felt very tasty!  I usually find that sweeter apples lose flavor but the sansa’s were quite flavorful even though that flavor was purely sweet apple.  I really enjoyed it and with a little cinnamon would make a nice dessert treat!
