Akane–Saucesational Analysis

We had our first decent crop of Akane apples this season and they were a hit.  These apples are crisp with a sweet, sharp taste.  They’re a little too tart for my purely sweet taste buds but I would say that 90% of the folks who tried a sample purchased a bag to bring home. 

Of course, I did my saucesational analysis of the Akane when they are all gone for the 2015 season … but at least you’ll know to look forward to it in 2016.


I did my standard procedure – peeled, cored and sliced up the apples and put them in my mini slow cooker.  A couple hours later I had applesauce!

This was a sweet but sharp sauce … similar to the apples!  It kept it shape and made a decently chunky sauce.  I think this is one I would definitely mix with other apples just to add a bit more depth to the flavor.  Overall though, it was a good sauce.
