Applesauce with no added sugar

I have been wanting to expand my little ones palate beyond berries, but apples are way too crunchy without molars.  He loves hose little applesauce pouches and we just got a huge container of apples from Costco that we’re sort of mealy, so I figured applesauce was a perfect way to use those up.  


6 apples

1 tbsp cinnamon

1 tsp honey

1 pinch salt

1 cup water 

What to do

First up, wash and peel and slice 6 apples. I peeled mine with a paring knife then quartered and cored  and sliced with my big knife.  

Throw all of these in a pot.

Add to your pot a tablespoon of cinnamon, a teaspoon or so of honey (adjust to your sweetness preference – I really don’t measure, I eyeball) and about half to one cup of water. Oh and a pinch of salt.  

Cook over medium heat for 20 minutes or until you apples are tender.  

Drain out most of the excess water and mash with a potato masher or blend with your choice of blending appliance depending on whether you want chunks or no chunks.  

And you’re done!  Super easy, super good, and no refined sugar!  Plus no wasting of those not so great apples!
