Easy Breezy, Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce!

There is nothing like fresh homemade applesauce! You can use just McIntosh or a mix of apples as mentioned below in the ingredients. If you are a fan of fresh, raw McIntosh apples, you are sure to love them in applesauce! This recipe is super easy and done in a flash. Enjoy!  


8 – 10 large organic McIntosh apples (or a combo of Mc Intosh, Fuji, Cortland and Ida Red) Peeled, cored and sliced

1/2 – 3/4  cup apple juice or nectar (if you want it thicker feel free to use less liquid)

(optional) cinnamon –  (1/4 tsp or to taste) (Keep in mind that there is no added sweetener in this recipe so if you add too much cinnamon the applesauce may have a bitter aftertaste, taste as you go)

Note:   When pureeing, the applesauce may seem a tad thin but once it is refrigerated it thickens up.  😆 (if you want it much thicker feel free to use less liquid). The cinnamon I used was Ceylon cinnamon. 


Add sliced apples to a 3-4 qt. saucepan.  Add apple nectar/juice over apples. Cover and Cook over a low heat until they are well cooked and tender.  (Be careful not to burn the apples). Once the apples are well cooked/mushy, remove from heat and let cool.  Once the apples are cooled, add them to the food processor. Puree for a smooth and creamy consistency or use a masher for a lumpier applesauce.  Add applesauce to a glass jar and refrigerate.  Enjoy!
