The Easiest Homemade Applesauce (Gluten-Free & Vegan)

apple_sauce_gluten_free_compote_pommes_sans_gluten_1I have no idea how I have never made applesauce because it is ridiculously easy and tastes way better homemade than store bought. It was scary easy and the only annoying part for this lazy girl was peeling and coring the apples. I am a lazy cook and I am now converted to making apple sauce. I was getting concerned that I was never going to use all the apples I bought apple picking back in September (I only eat green apples as is) and thought this would make the perfect side to Latkes for my birthday/holiday girl night with one of my favourite ladies (recipe for the Latkes to follow soon).

Makes about 3 cups of apple sauce (I would recommend doubling it)

  • 3 pounds apples peeled and cored (2-3 apples are a pound depending on their size and any kind of apple will do)
  • 1/2 cup apple juice (you can use water if you don’t have any on hand)
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (can use less or more depending on your preference, I used a full teaspoon this time)

Throw all the ingredients in a medium to large sized pot and cook the apples for 25 minutes over medium heat stirring occasionally. Once they are cooled puree them in a food processor or blender (I used my Nutribullet and only pulsed it for a second). That’s it!

Store in an airtight container. It keeps well in the fridge. Can also be frozen.

Amazing as a snack, with latkes or on its own.apple_sauce_gluten_free_compote_pommes_sans_gluten_4
