Vanilla Applesauce

Homemade applesauce always feels like a magic trick to us: with a little time and heat, crunchy apples turn into a silky, spoonable snack or dessert! Thanks to the cinnamon and vanilla, this version smells especially great while it’s cooking.
Prep Time 30 mins
Total Time 1 hr
Servings 5 cups

Equipment

  • Cutting board
  • Sharp knife (adult needed)
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Medium-sized pot with lid
  • Pot holders
  • Wooden spoon
  • Potato masher (if you have one)

Ingredients
 

  • 7 apples, scrubbed, cored, and sliced, then chopped
  • 1⁄2 cup water, apple juice, or apple cider
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions
 

  • Put all the ingredients in the pot, put the pot on the stove, and turn the heat to low. 
  • Cover, and cook until the apples are tender and the liquid has been absorbed, about 35 minutes. Stir the mixture occasionally as it cooks, to make sure it’s not sticking to the bottom of the pot. Using the potholders, set aside and cool for 10 minutes.
  • Stir and mash until chunky or smooth, depending on how you like it.
  • Eat right away or cover and refrigerate up to 5 days.
