No sugar, no extra flavours, no extra ingredients, just apples.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 5 -10 lbs apples (colour will vary depending which variety you choose, lobo is my favourite)
  • water

Directions

  1. Wash apples thoroughly.
  2. Prepare a large bowl filled with cold water.
  3. Cut apples into cubes (keeping the skin but removing cores).
  4. As you cut the apples, throw them in cold water so they don't brown too much.
  5. When you've finished cutting, remove from water and place apples in a heavy-bottomed pot, add a tiny bit of water so that there is about 1cm covering the bottom.
  6. Cover and cook on LOW heat until apples are completely cooked.
  7. Stir once in a while.
  8. Working by the spoonful, press apples through a potato ricer or a strainer; discard skins between batches.
  9. If desired (this shouldn't be necessary), cream sauce in blender or food processor.
  10. Cool before refrigerating.
  11. ***This gives a very thick applesauce, to thin out, add more water during cooking.***.
