This recipe for applesauce is simple but both healthy and delicious. It was originally submitted by Alesha Wilson of Wilmington, NC.
Here is what she says about her applesauce recipe:
“One of the great things about apples is that it is very easy to cook and prepare. Apples’ distinct flavors, textures, sweetness, and tartness could enhance the crisp and delightful flavor of any recipes.”
Preparing Apples and Preventing Browning
As you prepare your apples before cooking, you must first wash the apples. You peel, slice, or core them afterwards, depending on what the recipe recommends.
Immediately use the apple after preparing them, otherwise, it would start browning.
On some instances, though, when you cannot use them immediately, sprinkle some lemon juice to it once they are peeled to prevent browning. You can also soak the apples in a basin of water and refrigerate them to prevent browning.
Recipe for Applesauce
- 6 cups of sliced and peeled apples
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 to 1/3 cup sugar
- a bit of cinnamon if you want to add some taste (optional)
Blend them all together in a two-quart microwavable dish. Heat it for around six to eight minutes. Then add the mixture to a blender or food processor; let it grind until it reaches a certain thickness that you desire.
If you are just about to start learning how to cook apples, you can initially work with applesauce. Yes, it’s easy to buy an applesauce in any store but you may be surprised how delicious homemade applesauce tastes like.
Here’s a little extra tip:
if you want it to taste a little chunky, just use a potato masher instead. Once you master this, you will never buy another jar of commercial applesauce again.

Apple sauce is also easy to make in a pot on the stove, if you don’t want to use the microwave. Just put all the ingredients into a pot, bring the mixture to a boil, turn the heat down to medium low and cook for about 20 minutes, or until the apples are soft and have broken down.
This apple sauce recipe is wonderful with cinnamon so I would add at least a teaspoon, especially if you need it as a diabetes recipe. To make it a better diabetic recipe, I would replace the sugar with stevia or coconut sugar. Both are much easier on your blood sugar than regular sugar.
It’s also a great gluten free dessert recipe.
