Smooth Homemade Autumn Applesauce

Updated on December 29, 2014

Smooth Autumn Applesauce


Autumn is the best time of year for fresh apples. Apples are delicious fresh off the tree but are also tasty when cooked. One method of cooking apples is making applesauce.

This is a family recipe which uses McIntosh apples. They ripen in late September. When choosing the apples, look for apples that are half red, half green. See picture below.


In this recipe you can alter the amount of sugar to your taste. I have made this applesauce with Splenda instead of regular sugar and it was still delicious. It is also good with cinnamon sprinkled on top. Enjoy.

      Hope your trees do well. There is nothing better than walking outside and picking your food.

      If you try it you'll have to let me know if you like it. Thanks for your comment. :)

      Looks delicious! I can taste it through the computer screen. I love this time of year and we usually go apple picking. My children grew out of that phase. I planted 4 trees a couple of years ago hoping someday we'll be able to pick them in our own yard.
