Recipe(ish): Homemade Applesauce

This is one of my favourite recipes for fall. My mother-in-law taught me how to make it a few years ago.

Everything is an estimate because I don't really measure anything, I just toss it in a pot. It should serve about 3-4. (Or two people who really like food, like me and my husband.)

7 apples (I used Gala apples here because I already had them in the house)
1 cup of water
2 heaped tablespoons of white sugar
2 heaped tablespoons of brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

What to do:

Start by putting the water into a pan and putting it on the stove on a medium heat.

Then cut, core, peel, and dice some apples.

Then pop them in with the water and let it boil.

Add the sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon and stir.

When the apples get soft, just mash it all up.

There you go: The easiest applesauce ever!

I stick it in a plastic dish and then into the fridge to cool. (This is not a canning recipe!) How long would it keep for? Don't know... It never has a chance to get old in our house! (My guess is about 2-3 days.)


  1. This looks SO good! I need to get brown sugar from Meijer so that I can try this recipe.

    1. It is!! :) Did you notice my cinnamon is from Meijer? Lol.
