Imagine fresh apples, spicy cinnamon and fragrant lemon; that’s exactly what this recipe tastes like.

Ingredients

  • 6 Pounds apples, peeled, cored, rough chopped
  • 1 Cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon

Directions

Combine the apples, water, lemon juice, and brown sugar in a large stockpot, bring to a simmer and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 25 minutes.

Taste and adjust sweetness with additional sugar, if needed.

Ladle hot applesauce into hot jars leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Remove air bubbles with a wooden skewer.

Wipe rims, add lids, and secure bands until the fit is fingertip tight. Too tight a lid prevents air bubbles from escaping during the canning process.
Process jars in boiling water for 20 minutes.

Remove jars and cool.

Store your apple sauce in a cool dark place for up to one year.
