Homemade Applesauce That Your Grandmother Would Be Proud Of

By Michael Harris-Arzon, The Simplistic Professional

There are certain foods that most people, simply don’t even consider making themselves. Not when it’s so easy to buy them pre-made, and let’s face it a lot of them are just as good as what we can make at home.

To me, there are certain recipes that we should still know how to make, even if we don’t ever actually do it. I say this because, what happens if personal situations change and for most families, the food budget is the second most expensive monthly cost. Making most things from scratch is less expensive, and helps keep traditions alive.


  • 6 Apples
  • 3/4 Cup Water
  • 1/4 Cup White Sugar
  • 1/8Cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • Dash Nutmeg


  1. Peel and core your apples. Then cut them into medium size chunks.
  2. To a large sauce pan, add your apples, water, sugar, light brown sugar, ground cinnamon and dash of nutmeg.
  3. Cover your sauce pan and cook over medium heat for 15-20 minutes until your apples are soft, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove from heat and transfer to a medium size mixing bowl and allow to cool. Once cooled mask with a fork or a potato masher.
  5. Serve as a healthy snack or with pancakes or pork chops and enjoy.
