People often ask me how to make homemade applesauce. So, here you have it – an easy homemade applesauce recipe for canning that is full of flavor.


  • Any amount of apples
  • Water
  • Cinnamon and ginger (optional)


  1. Start by washing the apples. Then, peel the apples, if you’re using non-organic variety. No need to peel organic apples!
  2. Next, cut the apples into quarters and remove the core with knife or use apple corer. Then chop the quarters into cubes and throw them into pot. Add some water – about ⅙-¼ of the volume of the apple cubes. For example, if you have 1 liter of apple cubes, add ⅙-¼ liter of water.
  3. Bring to boil and simmer at a medium heat for about 6-7 minutes until the apple peels look translucent and apples are tender. The larger the volume, the more time it’ll take. You may also press the apple cubes down with a spoon a few times while cooking (check video below).
  4. Add a bit of cinnamon and/or ginger powder and puree your applesauce with a help of immersion blender, food processor or food mill. If you’re after chunky applesauce, use potato masher.
  5. Should your apples be quite sour, drip a few drops of liquid stevia into your applesauce. If you feel that your applesauce is too thick, add boiling water until you have the desired consistency.
