Homemade Applesauce

I love the season of late fall, just before the winter solstice. The days get super short –well, I don’t love that. Nevertheless, I enjoy the chill in the air and seeing the mountains covered in snow.

For me, cold weather is merely a great excuse to stay home and bake, and this time of year, I especially like to serve warm homemade applesauce. I peel apples and bake them in the oven. The house smells amazing and when it’s Hanukkah, the latkes taste even better with a dollop of homemade applesauce. Here’s how to make a batch of your own.

Homemade Applesauce

  • 12 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  1. Place apples and cinnamon stick in a large pyrex bowl with lid
  2. Bake covered at 325° for 1½ hours
  3. Allow to cool slightly, then crush apples with a potato masher until sauce is desired consistency
  4. Serve alone, over latkes or on top of a bowl of yogurt

Serves 4-6

While this warm, gluten free applesauce is a delicious condiment, it’s also scrumptious on its own as a mouthwatering snack or dessert.
