Easiest Applesauce You’ll Ever Make!

I‘m sure many of you have your own Apple Sauce recipe, but this is so easy I just had to share. The most time consuming part of this recipe is peeling and chopping the apples. Once that is done it takes under a half hour to make. If you have not made your own apple sauce, once having tried this, I guarantee you’ll never buy it again.

 

I used 4 Gala apples and 2 Granny Smiths. The Granny Smiths are crisp and somewhat tart, which adds a nice balance to the sweeter Gala, but use any combination of apples you like.ย

Ingredients:
4 Gala apples, peeled and chopped
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
3 Tbsp. Demerara sugar (brown or white sugar will work, as well)
Pinch salt
1/3 cup water
ย 
Preparation:
Place all ingredients in a pot and slowly bring to a roiling boil; about 3-5 minutes. Stir, reduce heat, cover and cook over low heat for another 10 minutes or until apples are very tender and you have a sauce-like consistency.
Give a vigorous stir to start breaking down the apples. Using the back of a large spoon, mash the apples until they are mostly crushed.

 

Cook another 10 minutes covered. Add a bit more water if the sauce becomes too thick. Remove from the heat. Cool. The sauce will continue to thicken as it cools, similar to cranberry sauce. I like a chunky Apple Sauce so it’s now ready to serve warm or chilled. If you prefer your apple sauce smooth, put the mixture through a food mill. This is excellent on pork, spread over warm toast, topper with plain yogurt, baked ham, and on and on!
