Unlike the sweet jams and preserves, applesauce is something that I can without using any sugar. I love that it’s tart, just like the apples. I add lots of cinnamon, but you could leave it out. Serve this with pork, roast chicken, by itself, or use it to make applesauce nut bread.
Chunky Cinnamon Applesauce (Unsweetened)
- Sterilize jars and lids.
- Make applesauce by peeling and cutting up apples, then cooking with cinnamon and just enough water to keep it from scorching. I don’t measure when making applesauce, just make what I have. It’s a little difficult to figure out how many jars to use, but this time I guessed 6 pints and it turned out to be 7, so there was one for the fridge.
- Ladel into hot jars, screw on lids and process for 15 minutes in a boiling water bath.
