Midnight applesauce
Not really. It’s actually called “ginger applesauce” but, given the time that I started it tonight, “midnight applesauce” seems more appropriate.

Happy Thanksgiving (well, in my time zone, anyway)!

10 tart, firm apples (Cortland, Granny Smith, etc.), peeled, cored, and chopped
1 c. apple cider
2-3 cinnamon sticks
1 ½ tsp. lemon zest
¼ c. light brown sugar
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
1 ½ tbsp. finely chopped ginger

Put apples in large saucepan and add cider, cinnamon, and lemon zest. Simmer over medium heat 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove cinnamon sticks. Add sugar, nutmeg, and ginger and cook until thick, 5-10 minutes.
