Homemade Sweetened Applesauce

Submitted by: MLBORINO

Introduction

My mom's homemade recipe. I reduced the sugar from her recipe. I've also made it without the sugar and it was still good (great for replacing part of the oil in baked dishes).

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    4 medium cooking apples, peeled, cored, and quartered
    1 c. water
    1/4 c. light brown sugar
    1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    dash nutmeg

Directions

Add apples and water to a large saucepan or dutch oven. Bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer 50 minutes to 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Apples should break down to applesauce consistency on their own (may have to adjust cooking time). Add sugar and spices, mixing well. Bring back to a boil for 5 minutes. Let cool before serving.

Makes approximately 8 servings, about 1/2 cup each.

Double/triple batches work well and can be stored in freezer for future use.

  • Delicious! Just the recipe type of recipe I was looking for...simple and very few ingredients. I actually left the skins on and then used a Foley food mill for one batch. It was much easier and faster and still tasted wonderful. Thanks again! This is going in my cookbook! - 7/27/09
