Notes

Another good recipe handed dwn from my Dutch great grandma :) The hardest part about making this sauce is picking the right apples but once you get it dwn to your favorites the hard parts done :) The secrete is using 1/2 pie apples the kind that tend to hold there shape when baked in a pie (Like: Cortland, Granny Smith, Gold rush, Ida red, Johnagold, Rhode Island greening, Braeburn, Northern spy, and Pink lady) and 1/2 sauce apples ones that are also good in cider are good choices too. (Like: Melrose, Macintosh, Honeycrisp, Johnathan, Winesap,Arkansas black and Rome) The sauce pictured is a combo of Melrose and Cortland (I used about 1/2 cup Br sugar for this batch). You can add several dif types if you want as long as they are split even pie and sauce apples :) You can get more ideas of apples to choose from here:
