Pretty-n-pink applesauce

One of my favourite desserts. I bought a 15lb bag of Sunrise apples in Salmon Arm last weekend. They're great for making sauce- they cook fast (turning almost immediately to mush). And if you leave the skins on, they make a pretty pink sauce.

I cored 6 apples, peel left on. Cook at medium-low heat for 20 mins in a heavy skillet. Turn heat off. Leave to cool for 15 minutes. Use an immersion blender to blend the peel into the sauce.

This is a great way to use up extra apples since it freezes so well. Use applesauce to make baked goods like apple-spice bread, cinnamon-y applesauce muffins or this popular almond & oat crust tart.

Any other ideas?
