It's been a long time since I showed you what I cooked.
Nick and I live in Alaska now. I moved here in December 2012 and Nick followed soon after that.
As a diehard fan of apples, I was happy to find that our new home in Eagle River, near Anchorage, has four small apple trees. I don't know what variety they are - it looks like there are two different types. The apples are small this year. Next year I will cull some in the spring, so that the tree puts its energy into making fewer, larger apples. Small or not, they taste great. Kind of like a mcintosh/cortland blend.
This morning, I picked a bunch and with some of them, made a small batch of applesauce.
I used a small bit of lemon juice and added a few grains of salt to bring out the natural sweetness of the apples. No sugar needed!
