I have always loved making my own applesauce..but it was such a time consuming adventure removing ALL THOSE PEELS! Not anymore!
Let me introduce you to the easiest applesauce ever: no peeling, AND the fiber of the peel is blended right in.
The texture is creamy…nothing like anything I have ever purchased in the store….you won’t believe the difference! So just once, try it! You will love it!
I use my Blend Tec in this recipe…I simply adore my blender and use it multiple times a day. Every real foodie should have one!
SUCCESS TIP: I live in Oregon, so apple varieties are plentiful via all the farmers in the area. There are SO many different tastes out there, and all of them will lend a different flavor to the end result. Usually I recommend a mixture to include at least some sweet-tart and some sweet for the right flavor balance. Yucky tasting apples = yucky tasting applesauce!
- 6 (about) medium organic apples (remember, this is the only ingredient, so use good/flavorful ones!
- 1 teaspooncinnamon
- Optional: additional fruit for applesauce combos like mango, strawberry, pear, or plum. If your apples were not too sweet, you could add a small amount of sweetener or fresh apple cider if necessary...I preferliquid steviaor palm sugar, but almost never need this.
- Thoroughly wash your apples to remove any residues.
- Slice with anapple slicer or a knife.
- Steam the apples on your stove for about 20 minutes. I use a steamer basket for this. The apples should look wilted and soft. Alternately, place the apples in a Pyrex casserole dish with a lid and place in the microwave, covered. Cook for about 10 minutes.
- Place all the apples and their juices into a high powered blender, like a Blendtec. The apples should not go above the liquid lines, or the mixture will overflow. Add in your cinnamon. Close the lid, and puree on high for about a minute (I used the whole juice button on my Blendtec).
- If you have a less powerful blender, or are using a food processor, this may take several minutes to get the creamy texture and to completely pulverize the peels.
- Taste and add sweetener if necessary.
