A very good basic homemade applesauce that's easy to make! You can freeze any leftovers in small containers to enjoy at any meal. A wonderful addition to any holiday table, too! You can even add red hots for an extra kick of flavor if desired.

How to Make Homemade Applesauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Core apples and cut into eighths. Peel if desired; it's not necessary. Place in large, heavy pot with the lemon slices, cinnamon sticks and water. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often. Cook until apples are soft, 15 minutes or so. Remove lemon and cinnamon; stir in sugar. Put mixture into food processor and pulse until smooth. Taste and add more sugar if you like.
    Store in the refrigerator.
