Melrose- Saucesational Analysis

Let’s keep right on rolling on the applesauce analysis train.  Next up is another great apple that you’ll have to wait until 2017 to try if you haven’t already – the Melrose apple.  This is a juicy, crisp apple that is just a bit tarter than the Honeycrisp.


Into the peeler/corer/slicer and then right into the mini crock pot to be cooked into applesauce.IMG_2477

This was not one of my favorite sauces.  The texture was just not there and the flavor was just not my favorite – tart with a bit of tang to it perhaps.  I’m sure it would add another dimension to an applesauce if it’s mixed with a few other varieties though – just not one I would use for a solo applesauce.
