Once you taste homemade applesauce, you’ll never go back to the store stuff.
Like your applesauce a little sweeter? Add white sugar, brown sugar or a little maple syrup. Want sauce that’s a little more tart? Add some lemon juice, or add some apples that are naturally more acidic, like granny smith or Cortland. Like a little seasonal spice in your blend? Try ground cinnamon, fresh or ground ginger, nutmeg, cloves or your personal favorite. For chunky applesauce (or to skip straining after cooking), peel your apples before cooking and then mash with a fork or potato masher.
