Fall = Time For Homemade Applesauce!

  1. Hi Laura! This looks so delicious – and healthy! I’ve always added sugar to my homemade applesauce – just like Grandma would make – but I’d like to give the sugar-free version a try. We also just made your banana bread…wow! We’ll be posting on that soon. It was SO good!

    1. You can’t tell that it doesn’t have sugar in it… or at least I can’t. I hope you like it. And glad you liked the banana bread :) I’m looking forward to catching up on your blog… it’s been a while!

  2. What memories you have returned to me — the orchard with its unbelievable choice of varieties. Remember the snow apploe? It is never seen today, not even at orchard road side stands. I will be stopping by King’s orchards soon to buy a bushel of ‘seconds’ — love the assortment it will hold and make sauce for our winter days. Lover, Gram

    1. I sent you a copy of Oklahoma Living today with this recipe and your pie recipes … and a drawing from Natalie. I miss the variety of apples we had! I loved the snow apple. We don’t have a lot of apples here and the cheapest I’ve found them this fall is 99 cents/pound!

  3. I remember going to my grandmother’s house when I was a kid for holidays. She would always make up a dish of applesauce for the kids with her “secret ingredient”…she’d stir red hots candy into the regular old supermarket applesauce. I have fond memories of the sweet cinnamon flavor and the bright pink colour. Loved reading this recipe and learning how to do it from scratch!

  4. How well I remember the sliding, squish of the Foley (my mother never called it anything but ‘the Foley’) as my mother churned quarts of applesauce. When we children left home, she stopped making applesauce and confessed to me that she intensely liked cooking, especially applesauce and any other canning. I’m so grateful she never told us children that; I love to cook.

    An apple new to me is the Akane. Tasty and just the right amount of juice.

    Thanks for the post and the photos – to the Foley!

    1. You could try pushing it through a wire sieve if you’re just making a little bit. Otherwise, you could could peel the apples and food process it or even cut the apples up before cooking and leave it chunky.

  5. As a kid, I devoured applesauce like no one’s business. It’s simply a great treat anytime of the day, be it breakfast, lunch, or dinner. This is an amazing and simple recipe that I’m going to have to try. Thanks for posting!
