Homemade Applesauce

This morning I woke up early to study for class but wound up making applesauce instead! An easy, delicious breakfast with plenty of leftovers for snacks.

– 8 medium sized apples (I prefer Granny Smith)
– 2 teaspoons cinnamon
– 2 tablespoons white sugar
– 1/4 cup water
– 2 tablespoons brown sugar


  1. Peel apples.  Some people like chunkier applesauce with the skins left in, but I like to take them off.
  2. Cut apples in quarters and remove the cores.
  3. Slice apples and place in large pot.
  4. Sprinkle cinnamon, white sugar, and water over apple slices.
  5. Cover and cook 20-25 minutes on low heat, stirring occasionally.
  6. Stir in brown sugar (optional).
  7. Stir apples until they break apart into applesauce.
