This diabetic apple sauce recipe is easy to make and delicious to eat. Pack it for lunch or save it for an evening little dessert.
In this day and age, it's much cheaper to make things from scratch rather than buy them at the grocery store.
Experiment with the "chunkiness" of the applesauce. Do you like yours smooth or with bits of apple in it. It is all up to and how you mash the hot apples. Also, do you like your applesauce sweet or tart? It all depends on what brand of apple you pick to make your sauce. It's great to have these options that are otherwise not available through store bought applesauce.
You can also make applesauce to replace certain ingredients in baking dishes. I often use it to replace 1/2 of the oil or 1/2 of the butter in a recipe. It makes for a lighter/healthier recipe for my family.
Want to make a large batch and store it? Canning is much simpler than you think and the applesauce lasts 2-3 years!
4 mediums Apples; pared,cored,quarterd
1/4 cup Water; to 1/2 cup
2 Sticks cinnamon
1/4 cup Nutrasweet Spoonful
1. Combine apples, water and cinnamon. Cover and simmer until very tender, about 10 minutes. Remove cinnamon. Mash apples until smooth. Stir in sweetener.
NOTES : I use a couple of dashes of ground cinnamon instead of stick cinnamon.
