6 to 8
cardamom pods, smashed
apples, peeled, cored and chopped coarsely
red wine, any will do
- Place spices in a 100% cotton muslin bag or cheesecloth tied with a string and set them in a heavy-bottomed saucepan.
- Add chopped apples to the saucepan and pour two cups of any red wine you have on hand over the apples.
- Gently stew the chopped apples in wine and spices over a low flame until they become soft and so tender they fall apart at the slightest pressure.
- Allow the stewed apples to cool to room temperature before running them through a food processor, blender or food mill until the applesauce becomes smooth and uniform.
