Quick Homemade Applesauce – No Sugar Added

Ingredients

  • 3 lbs apples
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 12 cups water
  • 2 thin lemon slices
  • 14 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Peel and core apples (I prefer to leave the skin on a few of them because I like the taste and texture). Cut apples into approximately 1 inch cubes.
  2. Add all ingredients to pot, and turn heat on high. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 minutes or until the apples have softened significantly.
  3. Stir frequently, making sure that the apples are not sticking to the bottom of the pot. Add more water if necessary. Remove lemon slices.
  4. Mash with a potato masher or use a food mill for a smoother consistency. Serve warm or at room temperature.
