Kercher’s Old-Fashioned Applesauce


2 lbs. apples, cored, peeled and sliced
1 C. Water
¼ to ½ c. sugar
½ t. cinnamon


For the best flavor use a tart apple such as Cortland, Jonathan, Ida Red or Rome Beauty, we encourage mixing of apple varieties for exceptional flavor. Golden Delicious apples make a great sauce if you don’t want to add any sugar…it is naturally sweet enough.

Combine apples and water in large saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until apples are tender, 10-15 minutes. Uncover and cook until thickened, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes. Stir in sugar to taste and cinnamon; cover and chill overnight.

Total Time:
1 hour and 30 minutes
