Susan Portman is a very talented artist who also knows how to cook artfully. She highly recommends her mother's special applesauce recipe. Her mother's secret was to cook the apple peels and cores in water to make a nice apple juice, drain, and then to add the sliced apples. Susan created a quick version of the recipe, using bottled apple juice, which achieves the same delicious results. Add happy memories to your Hanukkah celebration by serving this homemade applesauce with crispy potato latkas.
