Applesauce is a great way to use apples from any apple picking fall trip because it takes 10-12 apple to make this apple sauce recipe. Applesauce is also a great egg replacement, so not only is it yummy, but it's good for vegan baking!

Serves: ~7 cups
Time: 40 min

Ingredients

  • 10-12 apples, seeds removed, cut into quarters and then halfed,  skin-on (any type of apple will do, I used Macintosh from my trip to the apple orchard)
  • 6 tablespoons of water
  • 2 tablespoons of cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup of sugar

You'll also need a high powered blender like a Vitamix.

Steps

  1. Add apples and water to a large pot, turn on to medium heat, and then cover.
  2. Keep the lid on for the first 5-7 min, letting the apple steam
  3. Remove lid and stir frequently, scraping the bottom of the pot to make sure the apples don't burn at the bottom. Lower the heat to medium and allow the apples to soften for about 25 min
  4. Add the cinnamon and sugar and mix it all together, by this point, the apples should have softened and the smell of fresh apple sauce should fill your kitchen. Taste test to see if you need more sugar or cinnamon
  5. Transfer apples to a high powered blender (I used my Vitamix) and blend until smooth or whatever consistency you like
  6. Let the apple sauce cool down and then enjoy!
