Homemade Apple Sauce

Recipe modified from Food for Tots
  • 6 large apples (I used 1 Granny Smith & 5 Pink Lady)
  • 6-8 tbsp subsitute sugar
  • 6 tsp lemon juice
  • 5 strips of julienned lemon rinds
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  1. Peel and core the apples. Quarter the apples. Dice the apple pieces into cubes, about ½ inch or less.
  2. Put in a large pot, with just enough water to almost cover the first layer of apple pieces. Bring to boil and simmer for 8mins.
  3. Add the sugar and lemon juice. Stir to coat everything.
  4. Add in lemon peel and cinnamon stick.
  5. Bring it to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the apples are soft and all the liquid is cooked off.
  6. If you want a chunky applesauce, use a potato masher to lightly crush everything. (I used a fork to mash)
  7. If you want a smooth applesauce, blend it with a food processor.
  8. Store it in an airtight container. Keep it in the fridge (2-3 weeks) or freeze it. It can be served warm or cold.
