Homemade Apple Sauce

Homemade applesauce is very popular during Hanukkah. It is the perfect topping for the homemade potato latkes ( pancakes) which we eat during the holiday. It is fast and easy to make, and it tastes absolutely delicious.  I'm sharing my friend Paula's recipe which is made from a combination of apples and pears.

8 medium Winesap ( or other cooking) apples
1 Bartlett pear
1/2 cup apple juice
1/4 cup water
1-2 tsp. cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla ( my addition)
Peel ( I didn't)  core and cut the fruit into chunks. Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer and cook partially covered for 20 to 25 minutes, until tender

Cut up apples and pear ( I left the skin on since my fruit was organic)
             Do you eat your latkes covered in applesauce or sour cream?
