How to Make the Best Applesauce in the World!

posted in: South Lake Tahoe, Tips | 0

Hello everyone!  I’d like to share with you the recipe for one of my favorite Thanksgiving sides.  This applesauce is something I look forward to every year.  My mom has been making it every year for as long as I can remember.  It’s best served warm and works great as a light dessert for cold nights.  I don’t have exact measurements but this recipe is so easy, you can’t mess it up.


What you’ll need:

5-6 Granny Smith Apples





How to make it:
  • Peel and core apples then cut into small pieces (will cook faster). I like to leave some of the peel on the apples to make it a little more chunky.
  • Cover with just enough water to cover the apples and cook on medium/high flame until the apple basically falls apart.
  • Add sugar during cooking to taste and cinnamon.
  • Reduce heat to a low simmer.  Check apples frequently but it usually takes about an hour.
  • Strain the applesauce through a potato ricer to get any large peels or seeds that you don’t want.

Serve with a ham or turkey and enjoy!
