Make your own applesauce with just apples, cinnamon and sugar.


2 cups sliced apples of choice
⅓cup apple juice, apple cider, or water
1 cinnamon stick
⅛teaspoon sea salt
Unrefined cane sugar or brown sugar


  • Put apples, juice, cinnamon, and salt in a pot.
  • Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, covered until fruit is tender and the liquid has cooked off (about 15 minutes).
  • Taste the sauce.  If you feel it needs to be sweeter, add a tablespoon or two of sugar and reheat, stirring constantly, until it dissolves.
  • Remove cinnamon stick.  Puree the applesauce in a blender or mash with a potato masher, depending on whether you want a smooth or chunky consistency.
