Amazing Chunky Applesauce

I was anxious to try a new, chunky, applesauce this year. The Darlings haven't been too fond of applesauce. This one they love! Not only is it perfectly beautiful, it is perfectly yummy too!

A new use for applesauce! Carmel Apple Pie Sunday. A little ice cream, with a little applesauce, then a little carmel topping and sprinkled with pumpkin pie spice. Wow! was that ever good!!
Amazing Chunky Applesauce
3-4 pounds of apples, peeled, cored and quartered
(I love Golden Delecious apples for this)
4 strips of lemon peel
juice of 1 lemon
1 cinnamon stick
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. white sugar
1 c. water
1/2 t. salt
Place all ingredients in a large (heavy) pot. Cover and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Remove from heat, remove cinnamon sticks and lemon peels. Mash with a potato masher until desired consistency. Pour into clean jars, add lids and rings then process for 25 minutes in water bath.
