Description

Homemade applesauce is a breeze to make and even more delicious than the store-bought stuff. It’s great for snacking or to use in recipes!


Ingredients

  • 4 medium apples, cored, peeled and chopped into even sized pieces (choose a sweet variety like Fuji, Gala, Golden Delicious or a blend of apples)
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Cook apples: In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine apples, water, cinnamon and lemon juice.
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 10-25 minutes, depending on the size of your apples. You’ll know they’re ready when the apples are soft and have lost their shape. 
  3. Let cool + blend: Remove the apples from the heat and allow to cool slightly. For a chunky applesauce: use a potato masher to mash the apples. For a smooth applesauce: place cooked apples in a food processor or high-powered blender and blend until smooth. You can also use an immersion blender.
  4. To store: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freezer for up to 3 months.
