Cooking Time



  • 5 pounds apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 8 slices
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/3 cup Stevia
  • 2 tablespoons dark, unsulfured molasses
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large heavy-bottom saucepan. Over medium heat, bring to a boil. Cook, partially covered, for 45 – 60 minutes, occasionally stirring, until the apples are very soft.
  2. Puree in 2 or 3 batches in a food processor until the applesauce is the consistency you prefer. If you want chunky applesauce, use the dough blade or pulse with the chopping blade a few times. If you like smooth applesauce, use the chopping blade and puree until completely smooth.
  3. Pour into a bowl and stir in the butter. Transfer to mason jars or an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.
