Eldress Bertha's Applesauce

Yield 2 1/4 cups (serving size: about 1/4 cup)
Eldress Bertha Lindsay was one of the last surviving residents at Canterbury Shaker Village. She liked to make this sauce with Baldwin apples. We tested it with Pink Lady apples, which are easier to find.

  • 5 1/2 cups chopped peeled Pink Lady apple (about 4)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 (2-inch) cinnamon stick
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of almond extract
