1: Dump your apples in the sink and wash them. Fill sink with cool water and add a cup of white vinegar. I use a small brush to scrub if needed.
2: Once I get a bowl full of clean apples, I quarter them. Remove any bad spots and put in another bowl.
3: Put quartered apples in a big pot. Add some water so that they don't stick. Cook until soft.
4: Run your cooked apples through a strainer or food mill to remove the peels and seeds.
6: When you get the sauce done you can add 1/4 cup of sugar per pound of apples or just sweeten to suit your taste. I used Yellow Delicious apples and they are just right so I don't add any sugar.
7: Bring your sauce to a boil, stirring to prevent sticking. Keep sauce boiling as you fill the jars.
8: Ladel into jars leaving 1/2 inche headspace. Remove air bubbles. Process in a boiling water bath both pints and quarts for 20 minutes.
9: Remove lid and wait 5 more minutes. Place jars on counter to cool for 24 hours. Label and Store.
10: If you want spiced applesauce you can add a little cinnamon, all spice or nutmeg, whichever you like and boil it stirring constantly for 5 minutes.
Notes: If you do not have a strainer or food mill, simply peel, quarter and core your apples. Cook them with a little water to prevent sticking until soft. Puree the apples in a food processor. Return the puree to a pot and continue with step six.
