Homemade Applesauce

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 14
Yield: 3/4 cup per apple


water as needed
1 cinnamon stick per 2 to 4 apples (optional)
1 tablespoon lemon juice


1. Peel and core the apples, and cut into chunks. Place the chunks in an appropriate-size pot with about 1/2-inch of water and cinnamon sticks, if desired.
2. Bring the water to a boil, cover immediately, and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer slowly while stirring often for 20 to 30 minutes or until the apples start to break down. If they begin to burn or stick to the bottom of the pot, add a little more water.
3. Mash the apples with a large spoon or potato masher, until somewhat chunky (for that homemade look). Add lemon juice, if desired.
4. Let the applesauce cool before placing it in a jar or other airtight container. Store in the refrigerator, where it will keep for several days. You can also freeze applesauce for several months.
