Homemade Applesauce

19 Nov

You know what goes really good with Turkey (read: your upcoming Thanksgiving dinner)? Applesauce!

We had a bunch of apples left over from our apple picking this Fall, and the kids decided they wanted to make applesauce. Homemade applesauce is SO easy to make, and it has the added bonus of making your house smell delicious all day long!

My Kids Make Homemade Applesauce, and yours can too! Watch and see how easy it really is:


  • Peel Apples
  • Cut apples into chunks.
  • Put the apples in a huge pot, add a small amount of water and let it cook.  You can leave it simmering for a while (which makes the house smell great).
  • Sometimes we add cinnamon and even a little sugar, but honestly I think it is great without anything added at all.
  • Silas likes to smash the apples with the potato masher, but if you like your applesauce chunky, or dont want to play with your food, then just leave it as is.
  • Ta-da! You  now have applesauce
