Homemade Applesauce

A few months ago, I decided that I really wanted to try some "overnight oatmeal" or "refrigerator oats" ... but the one problem??  I had everything I needed, EXCEPT for the applesauce!  I have a weird way of thinking, that anything in a package, by any big brand company, is going to have it pumped full of chemicals - whether its for the appearance or taste - and who needs extra crap when you really only need mashed up bananas?!  Well .. not me!!  And luckily not you any more ;)

Here is a nice and easy recipe - and if you only have a a handful of apples, not a problem, just cut this recipe in half, or quarters!  It is definitely worth the time!

What You Need:

  • 6 pounds apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 8 slices
  • 1 cup apple juice or apple cider
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon (more of less depending on your taste buds)
  • Optional additions such as nutmeg, maple syrup, all spice, butter, etc.

What You Need To Do:

  1. Combine all ingredients in large pot, cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 25 minutes.
  2. Carefully puree in food processor until smooth.
  3. Store in fridge (I like to use mason jars!). 
  4. Serve by itself, overnight oatmeal, over pork chops, ice cream or even pancakes!
