Applesauce is great on its own or in baking as a healthy substitute for oil and fat in recipes. Keep the homemade applesauce refrigerated for one week, or store in the freezer to have it on hand when you need it.
4-6 apples, any variety, cored and cut into large chunks.
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
dash of cloves
2 tsp brown sugar
lemon juice, splash
In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients and give them a quick stir. Cook on low until the apple pieces can be easily mashed down with a fork, about an hour to two hours.
Remove from the heat, and mash down the apples, then strain to remove skins and any spare seeds.
