Recipe Booklet

Homemade applesauce is a quick (and healthy!) comfort food for the entire family. Our version does not call for any sugar, but some varieties of apples may call for a teaspoon or two.
Makes about 11/3 cups

3 medium to large apples (about 1 pound), peeled or not peeled, cored and cut into 1-inch pieces
(if you leave the peel on, the applesauce will have a beautiful, rosy hue)
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch ground nutmeg
Pinch kosher salt
½ cup water
½ teaspoon fresh lemon juice

(1.) Put all of the ingredients, except the lemon juice, into a medium saucepan. Cover and set over medium-high heat to bring to a boil. Once boiling, partially cover and reduce heat to maintain a simmer. Allow to cook until apples are very tender, about 20 to 25 minutes (keep an eye on the water, you may need to add a tablespoon or so during cooking – you do not want it to dry out).
(2.) Transfer apple mixture to the work bowl. Add the lemon juice and then alternate pulsing between Chop and Grind, until desired consistency is achieved.
(3.) Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. Serve warm or chilled.
