Homemade Applesauce


  • 4 apples - any apples you have on hand we used fuji
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of honey - optional


  1. Peel the apples with a knife. Or an apple peeler would be best if you have one. And apple peeler isn't very expensive and I use mine all the time.
  2. You can always use an apple corer, which cores the apple as well, yay!
  3. Toss the apples in a large saucepan filled with 1 inch of water and bring to a boil.
  4. Turn heat to low and continue to boil until the apples are fork tender, about 10 minutes.
  5. Drain the water out and pour tender apples into a blender. Blend them to a puree. Add a dash of cinnamon and blend again.
  6. Give it a taste and see if you need more. If my apples aren't sweet enough, I'll sometimes add about 1 tsp of honey.
  7. Pour into bowls and you have a perfect snack for you and the kids.
