Homemade Applesauce Recipe

Pin It
A couple of you wonderful ladies have requested my recipe for homemade applesauce. Since Little Bit and I have been under the weather I am a little delayed in getting this to you. None the less here it is!


4 cooking apples (I use anything pretty firm)
1/2 cup of water
1/4 cup of packed brown sugar. You can use white sugar but I have found that the brown tastes so much better. If you decide to go with the white us 4 tablespoons.
1/4 of a teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of cinnamon. This is purely your preference. We LOVE cinnamon here so we go for the larger amount.
1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg. I generally use a tad more than that but not by much as nutmeg can easily overpower the cinnamon.


Heat apples and water to a boil. Stir it off and on. Reduce the heat and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes or longer if your apples are super firm. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and heat to a boil. I use my potato masher to smoosh the apples. Of course the consistency is not like what you get from a jar. If you use a food processor I bet it would be closer. Mine is unfortunately broken so I can't tell you for sure. Either way it's really tasty applesauce. If your recipe calls for unsweetened applesauce just leave out the sugar. Wallah! Fresh applesauce in a jiffy.
