Apple Sauce

Turn your extra apples into a delicious apple sauce that everyone will love!

Makes about 3 cups/3 servings

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups (6 medium or roughly 3 lbs.) of apples cut into ¾ inch pieces (Remove the core, but no need to peel.)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup Turbinado or packed golden brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  1. Combine apples, 1 cup water and sugar in a heavy saucepan. Bring the mixture to boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until apples are very tender and skins are softened, about 35 minutes.
  2. Uncover and simmer until almost all liquid in saucepan has evaporated, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice and cinnamon (if desired). Cool 30 minutes.
  3. Using fork or potato masher, mash apple mixture until coarse and chunky (for a smoother texture, puree in a food processor until desired texture is achieved).
  4. Serve at room temperature or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 3 days.
