Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup Applesauce, recipe follows
  • 2 to 3 scoops vanilla or caramel (or both) ice cream
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • Whipped cream, for topping, optional
  • Applesauce:
  • 6 pounds mixed apple varieties (Gala, Honeycrisp, Golden Delicious), peeled, cored and cut into eighths
  • 1 cup apple juice or water
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Directions

Warm the Applesauce on the stove or in a microwave. Place the ice cream in a dish. Top with the Applesauce, sprinkle with cinnamon and top with whipped cream if desired.

Applesauce:

Throw the apples, apple juice and lemon juice into a pan and bring it to the boil over medium-high heat. Lower the heat and simmer until the apples are soft, about 15 minutes. Stir through the sugar and mix until melted. Add the cinnamon and stir through.

Puree the mixture in a food processor, blender or food mill. If not using right away, leave to cool and then refrigerate.

Yield: 6 to 7 cups

Blending Hot Liquids: When blending hot liquids, remove liquid from the heat and allow to cool for at least 5 minutes. Transfer liquid to a blender or food processor and fill it no more than halfway. If using a blender, release one corner of the lid; that prevents the vacuum effect that creates heat explosions. Place a towel over the top of the machine, pulse a few times, then process on high speed until smooth.
