Homemade Applesauce

Submitted by: MEGTHEKIWI
Homemade Applesauce

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    5 apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
    4 tbsp brown sugar
    3 tsp cinnamon

Directions

*Place the apple pieces in a large pot and cook on medium heat.
*Add a little water to the pot if it looks dry.
*Once all the apples are soft (about 20-30 mins) mash the apples.
*Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and stir.

Notes: I like to put this apple sauce on top of pancakes instead of syrup.
For a tasty desert: warm up the apple sauce and put ice cream on top or graham cracker crumbs :)

    I make this in my crockpot all the time. If the apples are sweet enough, we skip the brown sugar. - 3/3/09

    I made the applesauce out of necessity since i didnt want to open a lg jar of sauce for the small amount i needed for the recipe i was making. It was well worth making the sauce. Im covinced its better than store bought and will continue to make it. its a 5 star recipe - 11/19/11

    then why'd you give it only 1 star! ;) I'm sure that was just a mistake.

  • Very nice. I had 10 apples from 2 weeks worth of CSA boxes and used both kinds. One liquified and the other remained a bit chunky. Added some fresh grated nutmeg along with the cinnamon and only used 1 T. Brown Sugar. Tasty. - 8/23/14

  • 60 plus years of home made applesauce. We never used brown sugar, some times cinnamon, and some times not. We had our own orchard of apples, starting with Summer Transparent in July and ending with Winesap in October. Plus canned and frozen for winter. Used in place of jams or jellies, on pancakes. - 12/19/13

  • I'm making this right now and I added all the ingredients with about 1 tsp of Vanilla extract, yummy. I didn't add the brown sugar as I don't think I'm going to need it. I only used 3 apples, I used about 21/2 apples and cooked them, will add the rest of the small chunck for yogurts. - 2/9/11

    It depends on the size of the apples and how long you let it cook/how small you mash up the pieces, but a serving is roughly 1/4 cup.
