Recipe by Sarah in New York

This is a recipe that was handed down to me from my mother in law. This is at least 3 generations old and only has two ingredients! It is the best apple sauce I have ever eaten. People can't believe that all it is, is just apples and sugar!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 20 apples (Ida Red work best, or mackintosh)
  • 2 cups sugar (or to taste)


  1. Cut the core out of the apple and slice into at least quarters. If you have an apple corer that slices at the same time, your set! That's what I use and it takes about 5 minutes. (you can leave the skin on).
  2. Put in a 6 quart sauce pan with about an inch of water in it.
  3. Cook on high for 10 minutes and then let cook on medium heat for 30 more minutes. (or until soft).
  4. Put through an apple press (sieve).
  5. Stir in sugar and put in containers.
  6. You freeze the apple sauce in plastic containers, or you can also seal it in glass jars in a canner.
