Jumbo Apple–Applesauce Analysis

This is the time of the season that I still need to sauce the most apples … because of course this is the busiest time and we have the most apples in.  I’m determined to sauce the rest of our varieties THIS YEAR though so wish me luck!  We have a newer variety of apple called the JUMBO.  jumboI’ve recently had many folks ask me how we decide the names of the apples – well, WE don’t.  Whoever discovers/creates them are the lucky ones that choose their name.  The Jumbo apple is appropriately named though – it is HUGE!

The Jumbo was too big to put through my peeler/corer/slicer so I had to do prep this apple by hand for the sauce.  The resulting applesauce was smooth, juicy and tart!  Not too bad – I would add it with other varieties for sure but I was surprised at how well it cooked down.  (sorry I didn’t get a picture of the sauce)
