Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce

Have you ever made homemade applesauce?

Better yet: have you ever tasted homemade applesauce?

Three words: Oh. My. Goodness.

This recipe is as easy as it is delicious.  And, holy smokes, it is amazingly delicious.
Now, my dad raised me to enjoy the simple pleasure of a fresh piece of fruit.Honestly, I need nothing more than a crisp apple, a juicy peach or some sweet strawberries.But, sometimes I like to get a little fancy.  I said a little.
And, of course, it helps if it’s easy.It’s kinda my thing.

I hope you try this recipe.  It’s super simple to make and makes a wonderfully cinnamon-flavored chunky applesauce you won’t soon forget.

In fact, it’s so easy you may never buy canned applesauce again.

  • 6 medium apples peeled, cored and quartered
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  1. In a large pot or dutch oven, heat all the ingredients over medium-high heat.  Bring to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until apples are soft enough to mash.
  2. Using a masher or just a fork, gently mash the apples.  They should pretty much fall apart on their own.  Mash to desired consistency.  Cool in the refrigerator prior to serving.
