Organic Applesauce

Lisa Foote


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


  1. Wash apples. Cut apples in quarters. Place in large pot, fill with water. Bring to a boil.
  2. Cook apples 10 -15 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure they cook evenly.
  3. Drain apples in strainer and cool apples for at least 15 minutes.
  4. Put the food mill bowl over a larger bowl to catch the applesauce coming through. Use the medium disk in the food mill.
  5. Place 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.
  6. Add cinnamon to taste if preferred. Store applesauce in air tight container for up to a week in the refrigerator.
  7. NOTE: 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!
