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.

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 applesauce all the time. I have tried it with brown sugar and cinnamon. Not my favorite. I now like it with no sugar. Never have liked cinnamon in any applesauce. - 11/12/13

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

    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 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.

    This has been a staple for me since I started an internship in Early Childhood Education...little ones love to help mash and stir. For the holidays, I add Cinnamon Red Hots, since it's about the only time I can find them. Really kicks it up a notch. And, it adds color. Splenda brown sugar's good - 12/19/14

    Can you please tell me how big a serving is, according to your nutrition facts? Thanks! - 4/3/09

    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.

  • I make a lot of applesauce. Have you tried adding the little red hot candies to it? It give it a nice cinnamon kick and a pink/red color. Really tasty. I only use about 1-2 TBSPs in a 2 qt. pan. The number of apples used varies depending on their size. - 12/20/14

  • I make applesauce and never add sweetener. The apples are sweet enough. I do add cinnamon. After the apples are finish cooking, I use a potato masher to make a nice consistency. - 12/19/14

  • One of the best things about homemade apple sauce is that you can make anything from 1 apple's worth to a huge load. No need to open a jar, and have it spoil.
    Even freeze it in ice cube trays or bigger - makes a lovely add to breakfast yogurt, or afternoon snack, or whatever.

  • I have made apple sauce for decades, last fall I made 6 batches of 4 gallons each, and not one needed any sugar. I like the taste of the apples not the sweet and other spices when I eat applesauce alone. The sugar in this recipe makes a serving very small, 1/4 cup, without sugar 1 cup is 110 c. - 12/19/14

  • I just core apples and simmer them, stirring occasionally until sauce - no sugar at all, nor cinnamon - then put in jars and boil until sealed, if I'm doing a bushel. The right kind of apples don't need sugar. - 12/19/14

  • 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
