Applesauce is great on its own or in baking as a healthy substitute for oil and fat in recipes. Keep the homemade applesauce refrigerated for one week, or store in the freezer to have it on hand when you need it.


4-6 apples, any variety, cored and cut into large chunks.

1 tsp cinnamon

ΒΌ tsp nutmeg

dash of cloves

2 tsp brown sugar

lemon juice, splash


In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients and give them a quick stir. Cook on low until the apple pieces can be easily mashed down with a fork, about an hour to two hours.

Remove from the heat, and mash down the apples, then strain to remove skins and any spare seeds.
