Awesome Applesauce

Applesauce is the best recipe to try first with children as most children love it!

Basic Equipment:  saucepan, heat-safe spatula, teaspoons, dry and liquid measuring cups, potato masher, plastic knives, an apple peeler/corer. A tabletop apple, peeler/corer works best with young children.

Ingredients you will need:

8 apples (Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, Gala, Pink Lady, Cortland-variety works best)
¾ cup apple juice
½ cup water
½ cup sugar (If doubling the recipe sugar can be cut to 3/4 cup
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Makes 8   ¾ cups servings


Peel apples. If using the tabletop apple peeler/corer, apples will be peeled, cored and sliced into thin slices. Kids can crank the tabletop peeler/corer. Give each child a thin piece of apple to cut into small  pieces. Adults can cut the rest of the slices into bite-size pieces.

Kids can measure all ingredients into a saucepan. Adults then cook on a low simmer for 20 minutes.

Using a potato masher, mash applesauce.

Place into cups and let cool 10-15 minutes.

    G. LOVED making apple sauce with you! When ever we have store-bought at home, he reminds me that we can make it ourselves and tells me all the steps to make it!
