Hi, I'm Parker 👋
Instead of buying me a coffee, check out the best coffee I've ever had (And it's instant!)

Place the apples, salt and optional spices into a heavy-bottomed pan large enough to hold all the apples.
Pour in the apple juice or apple cider.
Bring up to a boil and then turn the heat down to maintain a simmer. You will have to stir occasionally to make sure all the fruit has a chance to cook in the juice in the bottom of the pan.
When all the fruit is cooked and very soft, remove from heat and run through a food mill fit with the medium die.
Taste the applesauce and add sugar to your taste if it is needed. If you use very sweet apples, you might not need any at all. I used 100% Granny Smiths, so I definitely had to add some.
Taste again and adjust seasonings.
Let cool then refrigerate.
Use within a week to ten days.
