Simple apple sauce, just apples and water. Choose which method to use with either a food mill, food processor or potato masher. Add cinnamon and honey to taste.



  • 6 cups saucing apples, such as Macintosh (4 to 5 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Cut apples in half and remove seeds with melon baller. Cut into quarters.
  2. Place in large heavy-bottomed soup pot with water. Cover and place over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the apples are completely broken down.
  3. Process through food mill and discard seeds. Alternatively, if you do not have a food mill, peel and core apples. Continue with cooking instructions and process with food processor or potato masher to desired consistency.
