good way to reheat applesauce to boiling?

lingonAugust 26, 2010

So, I just realised that applesauce that bubbles is not boiling. In my attempts to actually get the sauce to a boiling temperature I covered my kitchen with applesauce splats and burnt my arm in two places so badly it blistered. It spits at even the lowest temperature, or even when constantly stirring at medium temp and takes forever to heat - it starts at about 160 after cooking the apples and putting them through the foley food mill.

How do you all do it? Right now I'm considering microwave or crock pot - I really do not want to tend to spitting applesauce for the next 10 batches of applesauce I plan on making.

I just use a deep pot. Try heating in batches. Fill enough jars for one canner load before heating the next. The crockpot doesn't boil it hot enough.
It may also be too thick. Applesauce should be just that, a sauce. If it is full of bubbles when you process it, it is too thick.

I know this is an old thread, but I want to keep it alive in case it might help someone else as much as it helped me.

When I made applesauce the other day, it looked more like apple paste than applesauce and the processed jars were full of big bubbles. I found this thread and realized I needed to thin and reprocess, so I did the next day. I added some water while heating till the texture seemed right. It was so much easier to fill the jars and there were almost no bubbles in the jars after processing.

I love the wisdom on this forum!
