How To Make Chunky Homemade Applesauce

Homemade applesauce is leagues better than the ones you buy at the store. It has sweetness, tartness, and richness that’s almost like apple pie filling.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 45 minutes
Total: 1 hour



  • 4lbsapples,(about 10), peeled, cored and cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 3tbspunsalted butter,cut into ¼ inch chunks
  • ¼cuplight brown sugar,(plus 2 tbsp), or dark brown sugar, packed
  • ground cinnamon,for serving, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Place the apples in a 9×13-inch baking dish. Scatter the brown sugar and chunks of butter evenly over top.

  3. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 45 to 50 minutes, tossing once halfway through, until the apples are very tender.

  4. Mash the apples with a potato masher or fork. Taste; if the applesauce is too tart, add more brown sugar little by little until the flavors are balanced.
