have a very simple answer - blend up some tasty
apples and serve.
No store-bought brand will compare to fresh raw apple sauce, and I'll
walk you through the process of how to make it.
A video guiding you through the process is included in the
middle of the article.
How to Make Applesauce
Step One: Get Your Apples
Since you'll be
adding no sweeteners, your raw apple sauce will sink or swim depending
on the quality of your apples. Tasteless, pasty apples from the store
aren't going to cut it. You want the sweetest, most crisp fruit you can
find. If possible, go straight to a farmer and get them right off the
tree. My favorite variety is Honeycrisp, but use whatever you think
Just remember that when it comes to applesauce, sweet trumps sour.
Step Two: Get Your Blender
Apples are not the
easiest fruit to puree, and if your blender isn't up to the task you're
going to be in trouble.
Most store-bought blenders probably don't have the power required. I
highly suggest a Vitamix
blender because it never jams and includes a tamper, which is crucial
for pushing the fruit into the blades.
Step Three: Chop, Blend, and Enjoy.
Slice the apples
into smaller pieces and place them in your blender.Blend on high and
use your tamper to press the fruit into the blades for a smooth sauce.
Blend on low use your pulse feature to make it more chunky.
