Make Your Own Applesauce
Author: Kelly - Simple Life Mom
  • 4 pounds Apples
  • Water
  • 1 lemon
  1. Wash Apples
  2. Core Apples (Peel if desired)
  3. Add 2 inches of water to the pot and the juice of 1 lemon.
  4. Cook apples until they are soft, 1- 2 hours depending on the temperature. I like to get them before they're completely mush, where they still have a little texture. Some people add a little brown sugar at this point. I like to just add cinnamon.
  5. If you have removed the peels, just crush with a potato masher if necessary and add to sanitized jars. If you left the skins on, just add the mixture to a blender and blend.
  6. Place jars in freezer or fridge, or process jars for canning (Put hot mixture in jars that have been boiled. Seal with lid and boil in water for another 5 minutes. Let cool and lids should pop down).
