No-sugar-added applesauce 

Standard

One of my favorite things to make in the fall and autumn time is applesauce! I looked through a few recipes online, which inspired this recipe.

Ingredients:


3lbs apples

1 tsp cinnamon
sprinkle of nutmeg
1 1/2 cups apple juice
1/4 tsp salt
A squirt of lemon juice
Peel and core the apples. I use this really nice Pampered Chef apple peeler.


The apples come out sliced in rings. Then it takes just a few quick slices to get nice bite-size pieces of apples.


Add all ingredients in a large pot. It’s not going to look like there’s much liquid. That’s correct! As the apples cook, they give off their own juice.


Bring the liquid to a boil. Since the apples are atop the liquid, just use your spoon to check and see when the juice in the bottom of the pan starts boiling.


Then cover, turn to low and simmer 20 minutes. (Stir every 5-10min). 


Pour it into your Blendtec in two batches and press the “sauce” button.


Allow to cool a bit (it’s boiling hot at this point). This is delicious warm or cold! 


You can put it in a jar and keep in your fridge for up to a week (if it doesn’t all get eaten in one sitting!). I usually let my kids eat a bunch and then still have enough to fill about 15 squooshies (reusable food pouches our kids love).
