Charlotte’s Recipe: Homemade Applesauce

It’s apple season! Here is a quick and easy homemade applesauce recipe that your kids will love!
  • ~ 9 medium sized apples (experiment with different varieties!)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 half of a lemon’s juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (or as much as you like – try using a variety of fall spices!)

sugar or local honey can be used as sweeteners to taste, if desired.


  1. Wash and peel the apples (leaving some skin). Then slice each apple into 8 or so slices. Removing stems, seeds and any spoiled parts.
  2.  Put the ingredients into a pot and bring to a boil.
  3.  Let the apple mixture summer for 20 minutes or until the apples have softened significantly.
  4.  Stir often to make sure the apples are not sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  5. You can eat the applesauce as is, mash the applesauce with a potato masher or if you prefer a smoother texture put it in your blender. Serve hot or cold with graham crackers. Enjoy!

You can also experiment with putting the sliced and cored apples in the crockpot if you have one, for an equally tasty hands-off version!
