How To Make Homemade Applesauce

Get that autumn flavor with this savory homemade applesauce. It’s rich and easy to make, all you need are apples, maple syrup, and apple cider vinegar.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Cool Time: 7 hours
Total: 7 hours 30 minutes



  • lbsGala apples
  • lbsGranny Smith apples
  • cupwater
  • 2tbspmaple syrup or honey, more to taste
  • 2tspground cinnamon
  • 2tspapple cider vinegar


  1. Peel, core, and chop the apples into 2-inch chunks.

  2. In a medium Dutch oven or large stainless steel saucepan, combine the apple chunks, water, maple syrup, and cinnamon.

  3. Cover and bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat. Continue simmering, stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender and falling apart, about 15 to 20 minutes.

  4. Remove the pot from the heat. For chunky applesauce, use a potato masher or the back of a sturdy spatula or wooden spoon to break it up to the desired consistency. For smooth applesauce, blend it in the food processor.

  5. Stir in the vinegar. Adjust to taste as necessary—for sweeter applesauce, stir in more maple syrup. For more spice, add more cinnamon; for more complexity, add another teaspoon of vinegar.

  6. Serve warm or chilled.
