Directions

  1. Combine apples, red wine, bay leaf and sugar (adjust the amount of sugar based on your preference and the tartness of the apples) in a large saucepan.
  2. Cover and cook over medium heat for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Mash the apples with the back of a spoon as they begin to soften.
  4. Remove the bay leaf.
  5. For thicker applesauce, boil uncovered and stir constantly until it has reduced slightly.
  6. Use a food mill, if you want a smoother sauce.
  7. Add butter and adjust the sweetness by adding more sugar if necessary.
