Hot carmeled apple sauce

I got some apples from a client today because I wanted to try my new peeler/corer, and cuz I'd already made and frozen about 15 pints for them.

MAN, if you have apples you need to cook up, get one of those peelers!  It's fun, and fast, completely human powered, and the price is finally right--this one was 15 bucks.

Anyway, as I stirred, I thought about the different ways I like apples.  Pie is good, but it's too much crisp is WONDERFUL, and so is the first carmeled apple every fall, especially the ones dipped in crushed nuts.  Ooo! How bout if I leave some chunks of apple in it, and use brown sugar instead of granulated...add a little extra cinnamon...and a stick of butter?
Woohoo, this stuff is EXCELLENT, especially hot with some walnuts thrown in--can you imagine how good it'll be over Vanilla ice cream?  OMG, yum! ☺

P.S.  If you want to see how a peeler works, type "apple peeler corer" into the search bar on YouTube.

See?  LOTS of people think its cool, not just me!
