Easiest ever homemade applesauce recipe

Yield 4 servings


  • 4 large apples (peeled, cored and diced)
  • 3/4 cup apple cider
  • 1/4 cup white sugar (use less if you desire a less sweet applesauce)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. In a large pot add diced apples, apple cider, sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Cover the pot and simmer over medium heat until the apples are tender and start to get mushy, about 20 minutes.
  3. Using a potato masher, mash the apples until they reach your desired consistency. If your applesauce is a bit thin, simply cook with the lid off until it has cooked down.
  4. Enjoy warm or chilled with a dash of cinnamon on top.
