  • ½ cup water
  • 22 pounds Crispin apples this is equivalent to a ½ bushel. Also known as Mutsu apples.
  • Cinnamon optional


  • Quarter the apples, no need to peel or core.
  • Working in batches, place the water and apples in a large pot or pan.
  • Cover and place over medium heat. Cook until apples break down, about 20-30 minutes.
  • When the apples are soft, run them through a Kitchenaid with the fruit and vegetable strainer attachment, or use a food mill to separate the seeds/skins from the apples.
  • Add cinnamon, if using, and stir.
  • Store in the fridge or freezer.


This recipe is to make a big batch and freeze. You can easily cut this recipe down to smaller batches. For just a single batch that would feed 6 or so people, use 6-8 apples. 
Cinnamon is optional and depends on your preferences. I just add a tablespoon at a time until it's to my liking.
To freeze: After sauce is completely cooled, put it in gallon size ziplock bags, and lay flat in the freezer. Storing it this way, it thaws quite quickly. Alternatively, you can use mason jars. To serve, thaw in the refrigerator.
