Our Favorite Applesauce

If someone in your house isn’t feeling well — or isn’t feeling happy — then a batch of homemade applesauce might be just what they need. You can eat it plain, spoon it onto yogurt, or use it for baking.

  • 6 apples (any kind), unpeeled, cored, and diced
  • 1 cup water (or more if needed)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Put all the ingredients in the pot and put it on the stove. Turn the heat to high and cook until it just comes to a boil (you’ll hear it first but may have to look at the sides of the pot to see the bubbles).
  2. Lower the heat to low, cover the pot, and cook until the apples are falling apart tender, 30 to 45 minutes, stirring every few minutes to make sure the apples aren’t sticking. If the mixture seems dry at any point, add another 1/4 cup water. Set the cooked apples aside to cool a bit, about 10 minutes.
  3. Mash the apples using the potato masher or fork, then set aside to cool until just warm. Serve right away, or transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate until cold, or up to 1 week.
