Description

This sugar free homemade applesauce is incredibly easy to make and is an easy way to cut down the amount of sugar you eat without sacrifice.


Ingredients

  • 5 lbs. apples, peeled, cored and cut into 8 slices
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/3 cup Stevia
  • 2 tbsp dark, unsulfured molasses
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp butter

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large heavy bottom saucepan. Over medium heat, bring to a boil. Cook, partially covered, for 45 – 60 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the apples are very soft.
  2. Puree, in 2 or 3 batches in a food processor until the applesauce is the consistency you prefer. If you want chunky applesauce, use the dough blade, or just pulse with the chopping blade a few times. If you prefer smooth applesauce, use the chopping blade and puree until completely smooth.
  3. Pour into a bowl and stir in the butter. Transfer to mason jars or an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.
