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

    My family and I liked this a lot. We even sprinkled in some granola cereal and ate it warm. It was like an apple crisp. Very tasty. - 10/19/08

    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

    Why would I want to add sugar to a dish that is perfectly good and much healthier unsweetened? - 12/19/14

    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.

  • Why the sugar? You can use a variety of apples sweet enough not to require any sugar. I make applesauce in a crockpot and it is delicious. - 12/19/15

  • I have been making my own applesauce for years. I like to add the cinnamon because it is so good for you. I do use splenda brown sugar and it comes out wonderful. Before I mash the apples, I add chopped walnuts and use it over pancakes and over a spice cake. Then mash the rest. - 12/19/15

  • If you use apples that are ripe, you don't need to add any sugar at all. Cortland apples are great, and leaving the skins on while cooking gives the sauce a lovely pink color. - 12/19/15

  • 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

  • i'm not keen on cinnamon, and don't like sweet food.
    I peel and roughly chop an apple, add shredded flesh from an orange or similar (size and amount depends on amount of apple).
    Add juice of orange, and a wee bit of water if necessary. Cook, and mash.
    Add savoury tones or sweet, to taste, eg herb - 12/19/14

  • 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
