I make my own applesauce to use in recipes and to enjoy with meals. It's easy to make using a food mill that separates the seeds and skin. If you don't have a food mill you can just peel, core and clean the apples and mash them manually or in a food processor. It's a great way to use extra apples! I have included a link for an Applesauce Cake as well! Enjoy!

How to Make Organic Applesauce

Step-by-Step

  • 1Wash apples. Cut apples in quarters. Place in large pot, fill with water. Bring to a boil.
  • 2Cook apples 10 -15 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure they cook evenly.
  • 3Drain apples in strainer and cool apples for at least 15 minutes.
  • 4Put the food mill bowl over a larger bowl to catch the applesauce coming through. Use the medium disk in the food mill.
  • 5Place apples in the mill and turn the handle pushing them through into a bowl below. Continue in batches until all app lease are put the the mill. You may have to remove skin and seeds fro the mill disk occasionally.
  • 6Add cinnamon to taste if preferred. Store applesauce in air tight container for up to a week in the refrigerator.
  • 7NOTE: I usually use granny smith apples due to their strong flavor. You can use any kind of apples you like or mix them to create your own flavors! Here is a recipe for an Applesauce Cake that our family loves!
