Sauce-Sational: An Experiment in Applesauce - Fuji

We still have some fantastically sweet and crisp, full flavored Fuji’s in the shop so it was time for me to make them into some sauce!
As you can see in the picture the Fuji’s really kept their shape – in fact – this is a photo after I cooked the Fuji for 4 hours instead of the standard 2 or 3.  It was also super watery.  The flavor was a decently sweet flavor but I had a hard time getting over all that ‘watery’ texture.  Fuji’s were definitely not my favorite apple for saucing.
