Applesauce is so easy to make, it tastes better when it's homemade, and cooking it will make your house smell like autumn! I especially like serving applesauce hot.

Ingredients:

  • 4-6 apples (any variety but Jonagold, Jonathan and McIntosh are the best for sauce)
  • 1 c. water
  • 1 tsp .lemon juice
  • Agave or cane sugar, to taste
  • Cinnamon, to taste
  • Nutmeg, to taste
  • Cloves, to taste
  • Allspice, to taste

Directions:

  1. 1. Cut small apples into quarters, and large apples into eighths. Remove stem and core.
  2. 2. Place apples into a large pot or slow cooker, and pour 1 c. water over the apples. Turn the heat to medium low and cover your pot.
  3. 3. Cook for 45 minutes, checking on the apples occasionally to make sure they have enough liquid to cook in. If the apples seem dry, add more water. Stir the apples a couple times.
  4. 4. Using a potato masher, mash any apple chunks that haven't cooked down yet.
  5. 5. Add lemon juice, sugar and spices. Stir to incorporate. Taste and add more sugar and spices as desired.
  6. 6. Continue to cook until you're happy with the consistency.
  7. 7. Cool and store in the fridge or freezer.

Author's Notes:

I like applesauce with peels in it, and I love saving time by leaving the peels on, but this recipe works just as well with peeled apples so you can make it that way if you prefer. For a super smooth consistency, trying blending the cooked apples in a blender or food processor. Applesauce could be canned and stored in your pantry.
