Macoun–Applesauce Analysis

I’m determined to get all of our varieties sauced and photographed by the end of the 2017 season!  I haven’t missed one yet … fingers crossed these next few weeks let me acoomplish my goal! IMG_8210Up today is the Macoun.  The macoun is my mother-in-law’s favorite apple.  It is crisp and tart but not too tart.  Definitely a great apple for fresh eating.  As you can see in my picture above something was happening with my 10+ year old peeler/slicer/corer.  Jared took the blade off and discovered a chip which was causing it to miss spots while peeling.  Oh well – a little peel never hurt anyone!  IMG_8211

In just over an hour on high heat in my mini crock pot I had some chunky applesauce. I was not impressed by the flavor of the sauce – it was sweet but without much depth.  So … after the taste test I mixed it up with the Jumbo sauce I had made earlier and the two flavors together made a great sauce my kiddo’s just gobbled right up!
