Equipment

Ingredients

  • 6 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1 cup water (or more as needed)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

Method

    1. Peel, core and chunk apples into a medium saucepan.
    2. Add water and cinnamon (if using).
    3. Turn to medium heat and cover with a lid.
    4. Cook for about 20-25 minutes, or until apples are easily pierced by a fork. Add water as needed.
    5. Allow to cool.
    6. Pour into a blender and puree, or use a fork and mash.

      Pro Tip

      Apples can burn fast, so make sure to add water as needed, use a lid and don't walk away for too long! Cook time will depend on the size of your apple chunks and heat. I often find it takes longer than I expect to make this. So double the recipe if you use lots of applesauce to save yourself time.

      Storage

      Apple puree will last in the fridge for about 5-7 days and in the freezer for about 6 months. To freeze, portion out the puree into ice cube trays and transfer to an airtight container once frozen, or use a silicone freezer tray with a lid
