No Added Sugar Applesauce

This is my second time ever making homemade cooked apple sauce. This time I opted for a no added sugar version. This is quite easy to make. I used my crock pot so that is how I’ll be directing this recipe to be prepared. If using another form of cooking like insta pot or stove top you’ll have to adjust seeing I can’t say how those methods will go.

Besides the peeling and cutting up of the 12 apple I used this recipe is quite basic and simple and I assume fool proof.

You can use whatever apples you choose I used gala apples seeing that’s what I had an abundance of. Obviously different apples will have a different either sweet or more sour flavor to the final apple sauce. Also if you like to add a sweetener feel free, but honestly this was so tasty by omitting any added sweeteners.

Recipe :

12 gala apples peeled and cut up

1/2 cup filtered water

1/2 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 tbsp cinnamon

Directions :

In your crock pot add in the peeled and cut up apples.

Add in the water and lemon juice and stir to coat all the apples.

Now add in the cinnamon.

Cook on high for 2 to 3 hours.

Once the apples are fully cooked I simply mashed them with a fork, but a immersion blender or potato masher would work well. I have neither.

This was so tasty still warm, but just as good cold.

I’d say it will keep well for 2 to 3 days in an air tight container in your fridge.

Enjoy!
