Homemade Applesauce

Homemade Applesauce ~ Served warm or cold, this applesauce is so delicious.Because new crop apples in the fall are so crisp and delicious we buy them by the box at a local fruit stand. In addition to snacking on them,  I have been using the apples to make applesauce ~ one of our fall favorites. Made chunky with maple syrup instead of sugar, and cinnamon and nutmeg, it is nutritious as well as over-the-top delicious. We love eating it warm ~ sometimes with vanilla ice cream.  It’s like eating apple pie without the crust. Fall eating just doesn’t get much better than this.

Served warm or cold, this applesauce is so delicious.


  • 8-10 medium apples, peeled, cored, and cut into fourths
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (or 1/2 cup brown sugar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  1. Heat the apples and water to boiling over medium heat then reduce the heat and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender.
  2. Using a potato masher, mash the apples to your desired consistency. (We like ours chunky.)
  3. Stir in the maple syrup and spices.
