How To Make Easy Homemade Applesauce

Whether you are using it in a recipe or enjoying it alone, homemade applesauce tastes much better than the store-bought variety. Budget-conscious families can buy apples with blemishes from a local orchard to lower the cost. Applesauce is unbelievably simple to make. Depending on preference, leave the skins on the apples for added nutrition or peel them for a more even texture. Simply combine the chopped apples with water, sugar and seasoning in a saucepan and cook over medium heat. When they’re thoroughly cooked, mash the mixture with a potato masher to the desired consistency. You can also use applesauce as a healthy substitute for ingredients like oil or eggs when baking. Adding applesauce may improve the flavor or texture of some baked goods, too. In this video, Chef Mark will show you how to make applesauce in just a few steps. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
