Homemade applesauce is so simple and so much better than the stuff you get in the grocery store. I prefer unsweetened, but you can add whatever flavor enhancers you wish (e.g., maple syrup, honey, or sugar, allspice, cloves, etc.). Allow one apple per serving. I always make extra and stir it in to cooked oats, barley, wheat berries, or other grains.

Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Applesauce

4 medium apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
1/4 cup water (approximately)
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Recipe Directions for Homemade Applesauce

  1. Mix the apples with the cinnamon and lemon juice and place them in a small saucepan with approximately 2 tbsp of water.

  2. Cover the pan and cook the apples on low. Check frequently to stir the apples and make sure there's enough liquid to prevent burning. Add more water as needed, one or two tbsp at a time, and replace the lid (this allows the apples to cook mainly in their own juice and makes the sauce much sweeter and more flavorful).

  3. When the apples are soft and begin to disintegrate, remove the pan from the stove. Add a little water as needed if the mixture is too thick. Mash with the back of a spoon and stir well.
