Stovetop Applesauce

  • Yield: 6 cups 1x


  • 1 medium granny smith apple
  • 4-6 medium apples (at least 2 difference varieties (but not golden or red delicious))
  • 1 slice lemon (about 1/2 inch thick including peel)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1-1 1/2 cup water


  1. Peel apples and cut into chunks.
  2. Place apples in heavy bottom pot.
  3. Add the lemon slice to the apples.
  4. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar to the pot.
  5. Add half of the water and mix to get the spices mixed into the water.
  6. Over medium high heat, bring water just to a boil.
  7. Turn heat to low and allow to simmer for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Add water if necessary for consistency and stir occasionally.
  8. When apples are cooked well and some are beginning to easily break down, turn off heat and allow to cool.
  9. When just room temperature, remove the lemon slice.
  10. You can either mash the apples with a potato masher (which will give you pretty good size chunks of apples in the applesauce), or you can blend it to desired consistency.
