Step 1

Rinse, peel and chop the apples. Place them in a sauce pan or pan. I used 3 medium kinnaur apples. You can use any variety of apples.

Step 2

Add water. The water should just about cover the apples.

Step 3

Bring this mixture to a simmer on a low to medium flame. You can add sugar if you want. If the apples are very sweet, then you don't need to add sugar. If they are less sweet or not sweet, then add sugar as required.

Step 4

You can also add spices like cinnamon or nutmeg at this step. Quantities are mentioned in the recipe details below.

Step 5

Simmer till the apples are softened. Keep stirring occasionally when the apples are getting cooked. If the water dries out and the apples start sticking to the pan, then add more water.

Step 6

Once the mixture becomes warm, you can either mash the apples or puree them in a blender. Mashing gives a slight chunky texture. Blending them will give a smooth texture.

Step 7

The final color of the applesauce depends on the variety of apples used.

Step 8

Pour applesauce in bottles or bowls. Once cooled refrigerate them.
