Easiest Applesauce Recipe Ever!

It's Fall and that means APPLES!  Yes, we are surrounded by orchards around here and apples are one of my favorite fruits.  My husband loves applesauce so I thought it was time to share my recipe that is done in under an hour.  

Here's what you need:

4 pounds of apples - about 16-20 small apples
1 cup of water
1/2 cup of brown sugar.

First, peel and slice your apples and put them in a saucepan.  I used Jonamac, you can use whatever type of apples you like best.

Add 1 cup of water 

and a 1/2 cup of brown sugar and mix well.  You may want to increase/decrease the amount of brown sugar.  It depends on the sweetness of the apples you are using and how sweet you like your applesauce.  My husband thought this was perfect.

Using high heat, bring the apple mixture to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and allow the mixture to simmer, stirring occasionally. 
After 30 minutes, this is what it looked like:

Remove the saucepan from the heat and use a mixer to smooth out the lumps.
Update:  I now use an Immersion Blender and the applesauce is SO smooth!
That's it!  Pour it in a bowl and refrigerate.  

There are no preservatives, so I imagine this would last about a week refrigerated.  Around here, it's gone in 2 days, so no worries! 
If you like cinnamon, you can add it to the entire recipe, or add it to individual servings. 

I hope you'll pin, share, comment, and follow.  If you click on those 3 little lines at the top right of the blog, you'll see where to find me...or click on 'share'.
