Chunky Applesauce

Photograph by Shannon L. Buck, copyright March 4, 2015.

Homemade applesauce is easy to make in a pot on the stove top. Use apples from the store, or those you pick yourself. This is a great autumn recipe, but can be made throughout the year. It will also make a great addition to an autumn or winter feast. I usually just use however many apples I have on hand.




  1. Wash, peel and core the apple(s).

  2. Chop the apple.

  3. Place the apple pieces into a saucepan and cover with water. Only use enough water to barely cover the apples, but add more if needed before the apples are cooked down.

  4. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until there are small pieces of apple left but there is also plenty of sauce.

  5. Allow to cool or eat warm.


  • Use cinnamon to add additional flavor to the sauce. I add mine just

  • If the apples are tart, sugar may also be added.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve hot over Paleo banana ice cream.
