Homemade applesauce

Memories of fall always involve my aunt Melinda’s applesauce. Every season she fills tall glass jars with her sweet stews and my dad cooks a pork chop in celebration. Since it’s her speciality I never needed to make it myself, but I now live on the opposite coast. While my first batch may not be as good as my aunt’s, it’s surprisingly easy to whip up and definitely the perfect thing to cozy up with on the couch.

Homemade applesauce


10 apples
2 cups water
1 cup sugar
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg

Peel, core, and cube apples. In a large pot, combine water and apples. Over medium heat, cook apples until soft– about 7 to 10 minutes. Drain a fair amount of the left over water and add the sugar and spices. As you stir everything together it will start to look like the type of sauce you know and love.

Enjoy in front of a hypothetical fireplace, ideally with someone cute…

  1. I love apple sauce alot also.. My grandmother used to make apple sauce, and it was always so good. She told me she added a secret ingredient, but she never told me what it was. I am not sure what it is today, but have not found any apple sauce like my grandmother’s. It’s to late now to find out, even my mother does not know and she ate alot more of it then I ever did.
