This is by far the best applesauce recipe I’ve tried. It’s quick, easy and comes out perfect every time. I pretty much use whatever kind of apples I have around the house, granny smith, macintosh, fuji’s, empire, etc. Just remember the type of apples you use will determine how much sugar you will need. So always make sure to taste your apples before you go dumping sugar in. I have never had apples so tart where I had to add sugar to this recipe. I have however had them so sweet where I could have, should have, decreased the sugar a bit.
4 large apples (peeled, cored and diced into small pieces)
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup white sugar (or sugar substitute of your choice)
Sprinkle with cinnamon
In a medium saucepan combine apples, sugar and water. Cover and cook over medium heat for 20 to 25 minutes, or until apples are soft. Allow to cool for a few minutes then mash with a potato masher. Poor in bowl, sprinkle with cinnamon. Enjoy!
*This will thicken as you mash and stir and starts to cool.
