Homemade Applesauce


I'm not a big fan of store bought applesauce, but homemade?  Yes please!  😋  I used Gala apples for this recipe, but feel free to mix it up or even do a combination of apples.  Other apples I like to use include Fuji, Golden Delicious, McIntosh, or Granny Smiths!  You can definitely adjust the sugar to change the level of sweetness... some people leave it out all together.  Believe it or not my favorite thing to eat this with is roasted pork!!  Warning:  If you try this, you may never be able to buy or eat store bought again.

Ingredients:
  • 2lbs apples, (I used Gala for this batch)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
Instructions:
  1. Peel and core apples then chop in to small chunks.  
  2. Add the apples, lemon juice, water and sugar to a large saucepan and bring to a boil.  Reduce to a simmer and cook 15 minutes.  
  3. Add the cinnamon and nutmeg and cook an additional 10 minutes or until the apples are super soft.  You can use a potato masher to crush it up or I used my immersion blender to blend up about half of the sauce to a more fine consistency and left the rest chunky.  (I like texture!)  Feel free to blend or mash to the consistency you prefer.
