How to make Homemade Applesauce - Applesauce Recipe 

Homemade Applesauce is a great way to get more fruits into your family's diet with something they will love.


Apples are full of healthy antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins.  Apples also contain fiber which is part of a healthy diet.



All you will need is:

3 lbs. Granny Smith apples
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon*
1 cup water


Give apples a light spray with white vinegar to remove any bacteria and wash well.

You can also wash apples with a few drops of Ivory dish soap added to warm water.  Make sure to rinse apples well.

After washing apples,  peel with a vegetable peeler.  Cut each apple in half and carefully remove all of the core with a knife.  Cut the apple into slices and then into small pieces.  


Place the apple pieces in a large pot, and add the cinnamon, water, and sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 20 minutes. 

*If you prefer less cinnamon, cut back to 1/2 tsp.

Carefully test to see if apples are soft enough to mash, and that they are as sweet as you desire. Add more sugar if needed. 


Mash chunks to desired consistency with a potato masher. Stir apple pieces to assure even mashing. If you prefer a very smooth texture (the potato masher makes "chunky" applesauce), place apple pieces and juices in a food processor and process until desired smoothness. 

Cool applesauce in the refrigerator. Keep leftovers refrigerated. This applesauce may be served warmed or chilled. Makes approximately 1 quart. 

We have some ideas for you below to use your fresh applesauce!
