Home-made Applesauce

By Laurel Sterling, MA, RD, CDN


There is still time to pick up fresh, local apples at a local orchard or at the Regional Farmer’s Market. Last month, I posted my favorite gluten-free apple crisp recipe; this is my favorite applesauce recipe that I picked up years ago from Beak & Skiff. I have made it several times over the years and it is so yummy, quick, and easy!


8 Apples (peeled, cored, and sliced)

1/2 cup Apple Cider OR water

1/4-1/2 cup organic cane sugar (to taste)

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Place apples in a saucepan, along with cider or water. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally. When apples have softened, mash with a fork or potato masher, and stir in cinnamon and sugar. Cook for a few minutes longer. Serve warm or chilled.

Options to add in: cranberries, maple syrup, raisins, nutmeg, granola
