Coincidentally, I needed apple sauce this morning for my son because he has a stomach bug and needs bland food. I am not normally a huge fan of apple sauce (except Judith's), so don't keep it around, because when I do it ends up molding in the fridge. And, as I don't have a Squeezo, I did an abbreviated version of Judith's sauce that I think is worth sharing. I peeled, cored, and cut 2 apples into small chunks and put them in a sauce pan with 1/2 cup or so of cider. I slowly brought them to a boil and then gently mushed them with a spoon. That's it. It had a great texture, not the smooth blandness of typical store-bought sauce. Sort of stringy and chewy, which doesn't sound good in writing but was a hit with everyone in the family this morning - even my anti-fruit and veggie one year old. You could add cinnamon. It took 15 minutes.
