Simple and Delicious Applesauce Recipe

With all the apples we’ve got in our apartment, I’ve been looking for ways to keep them around but also not rotten. One of my go-to projects this fall is cooking up mass amounts of applesauce. It’s a great way to prolong the life of our apple bounty, and heat the apartment too!

Simple and Delicious Applesauce Recipe:

Ingredients

  • 4 Apples (peeled, cored and diced)*
  • ¾ Cup Water
  • ¼ Cup Sugar (White, Brown, None, etc to taste)
  • ½ tsp Ground Cinnamon

*I have actually been doubling this recipe since we have so many apples, I’ve noticed it takes about 8 apples to fill a quart-sized mason jar.

Step 1- Cook all of these ingredients in a covered pot for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until the apples are soft (If you are doubling the recipe they may need to cook a bit longer than 20 minutes).

Step 2- Allow the applesauce mixture to cool for 20 minutes, or until it stops letting off steam

Step 3- Sauce it! If you like your applesauce on the chunky end of the spectrum, I recommend mashing with a fork or wooden spoon. If you dig it smoother, a blender is a good way to go (pulse on low, then increase the speed as needed).

Step 4- Transfer to a jar or sealable container for storage.
