Homemade Applesauce

Applesauce is deliciously versatile - you can use it in a wide variety of baked goods, as a condiment (I love it on potato latkes), or eat it all on its own.

It's a snap to make applesauce at home. There's an initial time investment to peel and chop the apples, but once the fruit is in the pot it's a very hand-off process.

Homemade Applesauce

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeVegan

Ingredients

  • 6 apples, peeled and chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon (or to taste)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (or to taste)
  • 1/4 cup water

Preparation

  1. Drop apples into a pot and turn on medium heat.
  2. Add in the cinnamon, maple syrup and water. As the apples cook, add more water if needed.
  3. Cook apples until soft, then mash with a potato masher. If you prefer super smooth applesauce, whirl in a food processor.

Notes

You can use any kind of apple in this recipe. There are plenty of varieties available at this time of year, so mix it up and add a few different kinds!
