Description

Homemade applesauce is so easy to make and is an ingredient in lots of different meals. A total cinch!

Ingredients

  • 6 pounds Apples, Peeled, Cored, And Cut Into 8 Slices
  • 1 cup Apple Juice Or Apple Cider
  • Juice Of 1 Lemon
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar, Packed
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon, More Or Less To Taste
  • Optional Ingredients: Nutmeg, Maple Syrup, Allspice, Butter

Preparation

Combine all ingredients in a large pot and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 25 minutes.

Carefully puree in a food processor or blender (don’t fill too full; split into two portions if needed) until smooth.

Store in the fridge and serve by itself, over pork chops, over ice cream, over pancakes…or any place where applesauce is needed!

My first mother in law made her Applesauce using Red Hots. Turned the sauce redish.

Every time I see homemade applesauce, it reminds me of when my grandmother taught me how to make it. This applesauce reminds me of her. Looks so good!

Easy and delicious! And the color is beautiful. I live abroad and can’t get applesauce at the store like in the States, so this is a lifesaver. I can’t wait to put it in my cakes and muffins!

I use this recipe to make baby food for my granddaughter and she loves it! She won’t eat the commercially prepared applesauce for babies which usually contain very tart citric acid. I do cut back on the brown sugar, but I add both cinnamon and fresh nutmeg for more flavor. I freeze it in ice cube trays and then store in labeled, freezer bags. One batch easily lasts her a month (at 7 months old) and it’s great to mix with cereal, vegies, meats, yogurt, or eat alone. Great recipe, thanks Ree!

This was the perfect way to use my freshly-picked apples from our local orchard! I’ve made applesauce before, but cooking the apples in cider, made a huge difference in flavor. I added nutmeg and loved the richness it gave the applesauce.
