Whenever I buy applesauce, the jar goes mouldy so quickly I end up throwing half of it away. Once I realized how easy applesauce is to make I haven’t had this problem, since it’s never in the fridge long enough to spoil.
There’s not much to say about this simple recipe, except that it’s delicious. You can use any kind of apple here. I only like apples that are crunchy, so the ones that usually go into my applesauce are those I thought were crisp, but turned out to be mushy. Don’t call me an apple snob, please.
Homemade Applesauce for One
Three apples, peeled and chopped
¾ tsp cinnamon (or to taste)
1 tbsp agave nectar (or to taste)
2-4 tbsp water
Drop apples into a pot and turn on medium heat. Add in the cinnamon, agave nectar and 2 tbsp of water. As the apples cook, add more water as needed. Cook apples until soft, then mash with a potato masher. If you prefer super smooth applesauce, whirl in a food processor.
