Applesauce is a favorite in our home! I had been buying store-bought organic applesauce for years but recently have begun making my own. It is super easy and amazingly delicious!
This is one of the few recipes that I use organic sugar in. Typically, I use sucanat or honey when a recipe calls for a sweetener. For applesauce I use sugar.
Of course, you can make it unsweetened by eliminating the sugar. I serve this as a treat and allow the sugar.
A batch of homemade organic applesauce does not last more than two days in our home, the kids absolutely love it. I use it in many of my recipes as well. I use it in my banana bread and my apple cinnamon summer porridge.
Here is what you need:
8 organic apples, peeled, cored, and chopped, 1 1/2 cups of water, 1/2 cup organic sugar, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Here is what you do:
Peel, core, and chop apples.
Add organic sugar, water, and cinnamon.
Cover, and cook over medium heat for 20 minutes, or until apples are soft. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Using a potato masher mash to desired consistency.
I like to store mine in 1 cup mason jars. The kids like that they can grab a jar out of the refrigerator for an easy and delicious snack!
