Easy Homemade Applesauce

  • Author: Amanda @ Running with Spoons
  • Total Time: 35 mins
  • Yield: 4 cups, about 8 servings 1x


  • 6 apples, peeled, cored, and chopped*
  • 1 cup (240 ml) water
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon, to taste


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large saucepan set over medium heat.
  2. Bring the apples to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and allow the apples to continue simmering for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Depending on what kind of texture you like, either enjoy the applesauce as is, use a potato masher to break the apples up a bit, or use a blender or immersion blender to make the applesauce completely smooth.
  4. Store it in a sealed container in the fridge for up to a week.
