I found this recipe online from Alton Brown. He is one of my favorite cooks. I adapted it slightly to use what I had on hand. Here is the link to his 10 Minute Apple Sauce recipe. I used Paula Red apples instead of Alton's suggested apple choices because they were on sale for $2.50 a bag and the label on the bag suggested making apple sauce. I used brandy to make this recipe as suggested, but many of the reviewers left the brandy out or used 1 T. vanilla in place of the brandy and still thought it was fabulous. In addition, I used regular apple juice in place of the unfiltered apple juice.
This is how the apples should look when peeled, cored, and quartered.
This is what it looks like after microwaving for 10 minutes.
This is how it should look after mashing with a potato masher.
In a sealable microwave-safe container, combine apples with all other ingredients. Close lid, leaving one corner of lid open to allow steam to escape. Microwave on high for 10 minutes.
Using a hand blender or potato masher, blend to desired consistency. Serve hot or chill for later use.
