Homemade Unsweetened Applesause

Updated: Dec 16, 2020

I love apples. But when I got braces, the skin kept getting stuck in the wires, so I stopped eating them. Instead, I started eating applesause. Even when I got my braces off, I found myself still eating applesause more than regular apples, since it is less filling.

One day, I decided to look at the ingredients of the store-brand applesause I was eating. The main ingredient (besides apples) was cinnamon sugar. BEWARE, cinnamon sugar is not the same as sugar. It is a mixture of granulated sugar and ground cinnamon. Not wanting to willingly eat sugary applesause, I decided to make my own sugar-free applesause. The recipe takes 20-25 minutes to make, and you can store it in the refrigerator for up to one week.

  • 3 lbs. apples (Around 9 apples)

  • ½ cup of water

  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon

  1. Take the core out of the apples and slice them.

  2. Place the sliced apples, water and cinnamon in a large pot or saucepan set over medium heat. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes.

  3. Use a potato masher, blender, or food processor to puree the apples. They should have a slightly chunky consistency.

  4. Let the applesauce cool to room temperature.
