Homemade Applesauce

Applesauce is easy to make. By varying how long you cook the sauce, you can choose to make it chunky or smooth. Cooking unpeeled apples allows the applesauce to become a pretty shade of pink. For smooth applesauce, put the cooked sauce through a food mill or wire strainer. Enjoy homemade applesauce with potato pancakes and sweet and sour red cabbage.

Makes about 3 cups


  • 7 medium apples
  • ½ cup apple juice or water
  • ¼ cup sugar or honey, optional
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, optional


  1. Core and cut the apples into bite-sized chunks. 
  2. Put the apples into a medium saucepan.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  4. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes, stirring often, until the apples are tender.
