Julie's Homemade Apple Sauce

Jaybird's picture
Once you try your hand at homemade applesauce, you’ll never want store-bought again. I like to make applesauce in a pressure cooker, which takes only 10 minutes at high pressure, or slowly simmered overnight in a slow cooker.
Ingredients
  Apple 8 , peeled, cored and chopped or sliced (such as Granny Smith or McIntosh)
  Apple juice 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (or more as needed)
  Ground cinnamon To Taste
  Ground allspice To Taste
  Ground nutmeg 1 Teaspoon (preferably freshly ground)
  Brown sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (or to taste)
Directions

In a large pot, combine apples and juice and cook over medium heat, partially covered, until apples are very tender. Remove pot from heat.

Using a wooden spoon or potato masher, mash apples well. Add spices and sugar to taste. If applesauce is too thick, add a splash of apple juice to thin slightly.

Tip: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several days, or freeze for longer storage.
