Equipment

  • Stockpot
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Mixing spoon
  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 5 lbs apples of your choice (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Cut apples into thin slices. If using presliced frozen apples, no need to thaw.
  • Place apples into stockpot and turn burner on medium-low heat.
  • Add the honey and water and cinnamon (if using) and stir to combine.
  • Continue to heat until apples become soft, stirring occasionally.
  • Spoon apple mixture into a blender (in batches if necessary) and blend until desired consistency is reached. We like our applesauce pretty chunky so I don't blend for long.
  • Serve warm with another dash of cinnamon, if desired.
  • Store remaining applesauce in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 10 days or freeze in smaller portions for later.
  • To reheat, cook over low heat in a small saucepan until warm.
