ORANGE SPICE APPLESAUCE (1 pint)

ORANGE SPICE APPLESAUCE (1 pint)

Regular price $6.00 Sale

1 pint jars of silky smooth homemade Orange Spice Applesauce! With bold, warm, spices, a soft undertone of orange, and only moderate amounts of sugar this applesauce is fit for a simple snack or a fancy dessert!  Served warm over vanilla ice cream, you’ll swear you’re indulging in apple pie!  

This recipe started with an attempt to make an Apple Cider Syrup.  Sadly, I didn’t consider the fact that the syrup still needed to be cooked way down when I added molasses.  By the time it had cooked down to the right consistency, that molasses had become so concentrated that it was way too strong.  So I jarred it up to try and fix at a later date, but decided to use some of it to sweeten this batch of applesauce.  The applesauce still needed something more, however, and a touch of ginger and crystallized ginger proved to be just that something!
