Easy Homemade Applesauce

I bought a bag of apples for snacking, but it turns out they weren’t as crisp and sweet as I like them – so, they became applesauce! Stir a couple spoonfuls into your oatmeal or smoothie, or use it as an egg replacer next time you bake a cake. Or just eat it by the spoonful!

  • 4 medium apples (about 480 g)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Peel, core and chop the apples into chunks.
  • Place all the ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Simmer for about 30 minutes until the apples are soft.
  • Cool before blending (in a jug blender or with an immersion blender) – or leave it chunky!
  • Store in a jar in the fridge.
