~ Cassies Chunky Applesauce ~

Cassie *


With Fall comes apple season. My favorite time of the year. I love taking advantage of the abundance of delicious apples available. Making my own applesauce is particularly tops on my list. My family loves it. I used Northern Spy and threw in 1/2 a Granny Smith as we like a tart/sweet sauce. Sweeten to your liking and depending what apples you use may require more or less sugar. I add some raisins, but if not a raisin fan, just leave them out.
I hope you try it sometimes, it's too darn easy not to. I served it with a pork roast and mashed potatoes. Yum!

How to Make ~ Cassies Chunky Applesauce ~


  1. In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, add apples, cider, sugars, cinnamon and bring to a boil.
  2. Once boiling, reduce heat to simmer and continue cooking until apples are tender and liquid is reduced. ( About 20 minutes )
    Once tender, I use a potato masher and coarsely mash the apples. Can sprinkle with additional cinnamon or even chopped nuts for a little added texture.

    Great warm, but equally as good cold. Up to you. A great accompaniment to pork dishes.
  3. Enjoy!
