Sauce-Sational: An Experiment in Applesauce – NW Greening

Next up on the Sauce-sational Applesauce Experiment is the NW Greening. 005 NW Greenings are another heirloom apple, like the Tolman Sweet. It’s a large, green apple. It’s flesh is dense and tart.

I cooked it on high for 3 hours – admitted this was probably too long to cook the sauce at it was quite mushy in the end.


I was out sorting apples and I completely forgot to go check and stir at the 2 hour mark. By the time I got to it – it was boiling. I definitely cooked it too long. I might try again later but we’ll see. The flavor of the sauce was way too sour for me. It almost didn’t have flavor in my mind because of the sourness.

I do have to tell you that my daughter, Cedi, liked the NW Greening Sauce more than the Tolman Sweet sauce. This is the only reason I might try again – cooking it for a shorter time – Cedi would eat it.

My Personal Overall Rating (POR) (scores are out of 10)

Flavor: 4.5

Texture: 7

Color: 7
