Homemade (sugar free) Apple Sauce

I get sick and tired of foods claiming to be 'all natural' when they are not. Here is a nice recipe that you can use to make your own homemade apple sauce. It is sugar free, REALLY, and all natural.


  • 7-8 cups sliced apples, cores and stems removed. (I used apples from my apple tree.)


  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 c. liquid from boiling the apples


  1. Boil the apples, you should be left with about 6 cups of mushy apples. If you stick an apple slice with a fork,  it should slip off your fork. This is how you know they are ready. Reserve 1/2 cup of the water from boiling the apples for use later. 

  1. Place apples, lemon juice, cinnamon and water from boiling the apples into a VitaMix or food processor. 
  2. Process until smooth.
  3. Eat on its own, or, use as a subsititue for oil in your favorite baking recipes. 
  4. Store in the refrigerator in a mason jar or other air-tight container until use. Up to one month.

  1. I'm going to make this tomorrow for JJ. Apples are new! Maybe I will do a guest post on making baby food in a bit. Getting it down. xo
