Four Ingredient Apple Sauce

September 9, 2019

We have two apple trees in our backyard, one of which produces Golden Delicious apples. A few weeks ago, we propped up the ladder and harvested the entire tree. After we were done, we had two heaping baskets full! I couldn’t believe how many apples we got off of just one tree!

One of the things I decided to make with our apples was homemade apple sauce. I’m actually not a big fan of apple sauce but Sean is, and he really liked it! I liked that it only made a small batch so that we didn’t have a bunch of jars taking up our fridge space. Plus it’s about the easiest recipe you’ll ever make! 

Apple Sauce Recipe

Ingredients

4 apples

3/4 cup water

1/4 cup white sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

In a saucepan, combine all four ingredients (apples, water, sugar, and cinnamon). Cover and cook over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until apples are soft. Allow to cool, then mash with a fork or potato masher.

Yields 3-4 half-pint mason jars.
