Fruit Juice Sweetened Homestyle Applesauce

3 lbs. cooking apples of choice, peeled, cored, and quartered
2/3 cup apple juice
1/2 T. cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg

In a large pot, place the apples and apple juice, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until apples are tender. Add the cinnamon and nutmeg and simmer for 3 additional minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool 10 minutes. For a chunky style applesauce, mash the apples slightly with a potato masher or for a smooth applesauce, pass the cooked apples through a food mill. Taste and add more apple juice or cinnamon if desired. Serve as a side dish warm or cold, or use in baking.

Yield: 1 Quart
