Apple Sauce:  the Apple Sauce pictured is not a true Apple Sauce.  The Apples have been juliened, not pureed.  This gives more texture and flavor.  This version of Apple Sauce is good as a condiment with Ice Cream, Cereal or on top of cake.  To make the Sauce, peel and seed the Apples and then cut into Juiien strips.  If you have a food processor, use the 6 x 6 Julienne Blade to cut them.  Place Julienne Apples in a saucepan that is large enough to hold them along with Brown Sugar (minimum amount), some Water or Apple Juice and cook until the Apples give up their moisture and the resulting mixture is of the viscosity that you want.  If you do a large quantity pack into sterilized canning jars and seal with caps and rings.  Place in a kettle and cover with water to at least 1″ over the tops of the jars and bring to a boil.  Boil for 5 minutes.  Carefully remove from the pot and turn upside down on a clean dish towel.  Turning the jars upside down will insure that the lids will seal.  If you use a pot with a rack inside that can be lifted out, this will be the safest way to remove the jars from the hot water.  Let stand upside down until cool.  Turn right side up and tighten the lids.  Store in a cool dry place.  Apple Sauce is great with Pork, Poultry and Seafood dishes.

Tarts:  An easy way to make delicious, beautiful tarts is to have on hand some Puff Pastry Sheets.  Peel and slice your Apples and then place on Puff Pastry that has been cut into a circle or square, whichever you prefer.  Place the prepared Puff Pastry on a baking sheet – if you have Silpat, use that or just put the pastry on the ungreased baking sheet.

Layer the Apples on the Puff Pastry, being sure to leave about 1″ uncovered all the way around.

Sprinkle a little Sugar and Cinnamon on top of the Apples.  Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the edges have puffed up to form a rim and are a nice dark golden brown.

Remove from the oven and brush the Apples with Jelly that has been heated to melt it down to make it brushable.

Once the Jelly has set up, your tarts are ready to serve.
