When you have a 2 year old that loves apples you would think that applesauce would be a staple in your home, right?  Well, I have kind of slacked off on that.  Call it lazy, call it overextended, call it too hot to run the oven.  Either way we haven’t had apple sauce since our last large apple purchase about 6 months ago.

Simple Naturally Sweet Apple Sauce

Well, lucky me…  Our produce market had a fantastic sale on organic gala apples.  Color me happy.  I bought a few, well a case or two.  Then I went to town making Dried Apple Chips and Baked Cinnamon Applesauce.  Exhausted from apple processing, I decided to just make my simple apple sauce with the last batch of apples.  As a matter of fact this method is so simple that I didn’t think to share it. 

Once my Munchkin dove into it and started doing a dance in her chair, I knew I had to share it and go buy more apples.  Organic and naturally sweet with 2 ingredients?  Yes, more apples!

Enjoy.

  • Process canning jars according to manufacturers directions or keep in refrigerator.

  1. I just heard yesterday on the radio that there are many more benefits of an apple a day than originally believed. You prove that there are delicious ways of eating them!

  2. Home made apple sauce is the best..my son will eat it all (I don't make huge batches as I'm not a canner)and he's 17. Strawberry apple sauce is just as good 🙂
