I think it's better with Bramleys. Peel, slice into a pan. Add a little water and sugar, and simmer until you have mush. Add more sugar to taste.

Ok - sorry for assuming, I guess a pan will do the job We usually use cooking apples, I'm sure it will turn out fine!

titania, when i make home made apple sauce, i too usually use bramley, but, i find that if i use normal eating apples they don't tend to need any sugar.

I find that eating apples hold their shape more, so it is hard to get them to mush with just the simmering. You have to actively purée them.

15-20 minutes ish - depends how small you make the pieces.
