Wash the apples well. (Here's how I wash my produce
.) Core and quarter 3-4 of the apples, but do not peel. Put them in your blender (I love my Bosch blender
!) with the lemon juice, syrup, 1/2 cup water or tea
(if needed to get the apples to mix in well – it depends on the type of apples), spices, and sea salt
. Blend until the pieces of peel are really tiny. Pour the blended apples into a glass bowl. Peel, core, and quarter the rest of the apples and blend with another 1/2 cup of water if needed. Blend until your desired consistency, I like to leave this batch more chunky because the first batch gets very thin when trying to get the peels very small. Mix second batch of apples with the first batch. Stir by hand until blended. If you don't eat it all that day like we usually do, pour the applesauce into freezer bags, label and freeze.
