A simple recipe for Old-fashioned applesauce
Pare and chop a dozen medium-sized apples, put them in a deep pudding-dish; sprinkle over them a heaping coffee-cupful of sugar and one of water.
Place them in the oven and bake slowly two hours or more, or until they are a deep red-brown; quite as nice as preserves.
