Applesauce

  • Prep Time: 30 mins
  • Cook Time: 90 mins
  • Total Time: 2 hours
  • Yield: 8 cups 1x

Description

There's nothing like the smell of cooking down apples for applesauce. I love making this in large batches and freezing portions for later.


Ingredients

  • 7-8 lbs apples (I recommend apples that are somewhat tart)
  • 1/2 C water
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup (optional)

Instructions

  1. Peel and cube all your apples.
  2. Add apples and water to a large pot. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Cook for about 90 minutes or until the apples are broken down to your liking. I prefer mine with a few apple chunks in there.
  3. Add cinnamon and maple syrup, adjusting the amounts to your taste. I don’t add enough maple to actually sweeten the recipe but just enough to give it a hint of maple flavor.
  4. Chill and serve.

Notes

This is a large recipe but it freezes very well. I only kept a small amount in the fridge and put the rest in the freezer for later because I have a lot of apples to eat!
