Northern Spy Apple–Applesauce Analysis

The Northern Spy is a variety we’re just finally starting to get a decent crop off.  Northern Spy is an heirloom apple that characteristically tarter than most popular apples.  It has a harder/crunchier flesh than most with a thin skin.  Great for fresh eating but also wonderful for cooking, juices and cider. It is also a great keeper.

Now – let’s see what we think of it in applesauce!  Northern Spy ApplesI peeled/cored/sliced the Northern Spy apple and put it into the crock pot. 

Northern Spy ApplesauceIn just over an hour I had some deliciously tart and tangy applesauce.  It was smooth but not too smooth … still a bit of texture to it.  Definitely had some good flavor.  The Northern Spy holds its own as a lone applesauce apple but would be even better mixed with a few other varieties of course.
