So I realize this is incredibly late, but better late than never, right?
I decided to try my hand at homemade applesauce, using an apple peeler and my kitchen aid attachment.
First we peeled.
and processed with the kitchen aid.
End result tasted great, but I was a little disappointed with how much was wasted.
Next time, I will just peel, core, steam with a few of the peelings just to get a little more flavor, and then toss it (including some of the peelings) into my trusty vita mix. The coring may add a little time, but I think it will save me a lot of sauce.
