How to Make Unsweetened Applesauce

Health Benefits Of APPLES

Apples naturally contain pectin, which is a form of fiber that helps to lower cholesterol Apples are also considered an anti-inflammatory food and can help with weight loss.

This easy homemade apple sauce recipe is made without any sugar, preservatives, or additives.


– Apples – Cinnamon or pumpkin spice mix – Lemon juice

Peel and chop the apples with a potato peeler or small knife. Remove the core and chop them into small bits.

Step 1

Add chopped and peeled apples to a medium saucepan, pumpkin pie spice mix, lemon juice, and stir.

Step 2

Cook over medium heat and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking  They will take about 15-20 minutes.

Step 3

Watch closely and stir now and then to prevent sticking.  Add apple cider vinegar if you plan to store it for more than 4 days.

Step 4

Mash Use a wooden spoon or potato masher.  You can choose an immersion blender for a smoother texture – if you leave the apple skins on, I recommend using the blender once the applesauce has cooled down.

Step 5

Apples improve digestion, help to reduce blood pressure, relieve muscle spasms, strengthen the immune system and even give you beautiful skin!


 If you like smoother applesauce, you simply have to blend it with any type of blenders such as a food processor or hand blender.



Stored inside an airtight container or jar, homemade applesauce lasts for 7 days.  It can be frozen for up to six months if frozen. Allow space on your container as the applesauce is larger when you freeze it.
