Yields ~ 5 cups of sauce (~ 8 – 10 servings)
Serving Size: 1/2 cup
7 large apples (I used large Gala apples)
6 large cinnamon sticks
7 tbsp lemon juice
1. Slice all of the apples and remove the cores.
2. Blend together all of the apples with about 1/4 cup water. You definitely don’t want to use more or your sauce will become very thin so try to use a very strong blender.
3. Heat the apple puree on the stove top in a large pot. Throw in the cinnamon sticks (I broke mine in halves) and the lemon juice. Heat for about 15 – 20 minutes till all of the water has boiled. You will see the apple puree bubble and the applesauce will get thicker. Stir frequently.
4. Let the applesauce cool then store into an air tight container. It will remain fresh for a while actually – you can refrigerate it for about a week or freeze it for about a year!
