Sure, store-bought applesauce is super convenient. But there’s something so cozy about simmering a big pot of apples and cinnamon over the stove, making this recipe well worth your while!
- 4 large apples
- 1 cup water
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- Peel and core the apples, and cut into 1 inch chunks.
- Transfer the apples to a large pot, along with the water, lemon juice, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
- Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes, until the apples are soft.
- Let the apple mixture cool slightly, then transfer to a blender and process until smooth.
