Yield: about 5 cups
Ingredients
  • 3 lbs. apples (I prefer using a mix of Golden Delicious, Fuji, McIntosh, or Gala)
  • ½ c. water
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
Directions
  1. Prepare the apples by slicing and coring them-- no need to peel, unless you want to.
  2. Place the sliced apples, water and cinnamon in a large pot or saucepan set over medium heat. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender.
  3. Use an potato masher, immersion blender, blender or food processor to "puree" the apples, keeping it slightly chunky. Let the applesauce cool to room temperature, then store in the refrigerator for up to one week.
Notes
-My applesauce is slightly darker because I didn't peel my apples and I used cinnamon. Feel free to peel the apples and omit the cinnamon, if desired.
-If you prefer your applesauce on the sweeter side, add 2-4 tablespoons of granulated sugar to the apples as the cook.
