Sweet Home Made Apple Sauce

  • 2-3 apples such as gala, braeburn, fiji or delicious


The number of apples you use will depend on how many servings you need and the size of the apples. Plan for 1-2 apples per person.

  1. Wash the apples and peel with a veggie peeler. Then using an apple slicer, slice each apple.
  2. Place them in a microwave safe glass container that has a lid.
  3. Microwave the apples 2-3 minutes per apple. The apples will have nice pale color and there should be some liquid released by the cooking.
  4. Using a mini food processor if you are doing 3-5 apples, otherwise use the regular food processor. Puree the apples to the desired consistency.
  5. If you are serving this to kids, you may want to puree it to a fine and smooth consistency. Others might enjoy it on the chunkier consistency.
  6. Refrigerate any unused portion. The applesauce will be naturally sweet and delicious.

For a change of pace, you can also add a few pears to the dish. Also pears can be substituted to make pearsauce.

This recipe is great to use up those fruit that might be a little less than perfect. A truly organic applesauce for babies.
