Made Some Applesauce

Jess and have made 3 pies so far and we still have a few dozen apples left. We decided to make some applesauce for Arianna. It came in pretty handy that we bought a potato masher today. Since the applesauce came out pretty well I figured I would share the recipe with you being it’s apple season now.

Since I used pretty medium-small apples it was pretty watery after boiling. I would say if you use small apples go to 1/2 a cup of water, or do what we did and drain the water to a cup before mashing (in case you want to add some). That way you don’t make apple soup.



  • 4 apples – peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


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