Homemade Applesauce

5 from 12 reviews

Homemade Applesauce is so incredibly easy to make with four ingredients in one pot right on the stove-top.  Or do it in the crock-pot and slow cook them for hours making your house smell amazing.


  • 5 lbs apples peeled cored and cut in chunks
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar (or less adjusted for sweet apples)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. In a large pot combine apples, water, sugar and cinnamon.  Bring it to a boil and then simmer covered for 15-20 minutes or until the apples are very tender.
  2. For chunky applesauce mash with a old fashioned potato masher.  For smoother applesauce blend with an immersion blender.  Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.


  • Adjust the sugar to suit your taste.
  • You can make applesauce out of any apples but my favorites are Honeycrisp, Braeburns, and McIntosh.
  • For chunky applesauce simply mash with a fork or old fashioned potato masher.  For smoother applesauce use an immersion blender.
  • If you are watching your sugar wait until you have smashed your applesauce and add sugar or honey one tablespoon at a time until desired sweetness.
  • A really sharp peeler comes in handy when making applesauce.
