      Peel, core and slice the apples.
    2. 2
      Place apples in a large microwave-safe bowl.
    3. 3
      Add in 1/4 cup water, cinnamon (start with 1/2 teaspoon) and nutmeg, if using; stir to combine.
    4. 4

    5. 5
      Microwave on HIGH power for 10 minutes.
    6. 6
      Remove the bowl and stir the apples, then contine to microwave uncovered until apples are very tender (about 5-6 minutes longer).

    9. 9
      Bring to room temperature and then refrigerate for up to two days, or freeze in plastic freezer containers.

      Very easy method. I checked after 5 minutes to see if I needed more water and all was fine. I used less sugar and no nutmeg - just personal taste. Quick and delicious! Thanks Kittencal!

      The water evaporated and the apples burned. Probably because the plastic wrap somehow got peeled back during cooking, so keep an eye out for that. But it seems like very little water.

      Wow, excellent applesauce and so easy. I added a little lemon juice as I like a semi-tart junky applesauce.
