Haralson–A Saucesational Analysis

It’s raining again and I’ve been saucing but not finding time to write up about the applesauce.  I’ll get a bunch ready for you today!  I’m going to start with an apple we still have available at the moment – the Haralson.

Haralson Apple:

Good baking, eating and cider apple. Flesh is crisp, juicy, firm. Mildly tart flavor, not acid. Holds its shape and texture in baking. Retains good flavor in keeping.

I peeled, cored and sliced my haralson apples and put them right into my crock pot to make into applesauce.

It took a bit to cook down so I think in a pie they would keep there shape fairly nicely.

The applesauce was slightly chunky and had a great tart flavor to it.  Since I’m a sweet girl it was a bit too tart for me but my daughter Cedi just gobbled it down!  If you are a fan of tart – the Haralson is the apple for you!
