Homemade Applesauce

Homemade Applesauce
From the comforting aroma of simmering apples to the satisfying sweetness, this applesauce will surely become a favorite tradition during the Festival of Lights.


  • 6 apples (preferably tart varieties such as Granny Smith)

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/4 cup sugar (adjust to taste)

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Optional Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Peel, core, and chop the apples into small pieces.
  2. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the chopped apples, water, sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon (if desired).
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, then reduce the heat to low and cover the saucepan.
  4. Simmer the mixture for about 20-25 minutes, or until the apples are soft and easily mashed with a fork. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
  5. Remove the saucepan from heat and allow the applesauce to cool slightly.
  6. Using a potato masher or a blender, blend the cooked apples until you achieve your desired consistency. For a chunky applesauce, use a potato masher. For a smoother applesauce, use a blender or food processor.
  7. Taste the applesauce and adjust the sweetness or tartness by adding more sugar or lemon juice if desired.
  8. Serve the homemade applesauce warm or chilled as a delicious accompaniment to latkes or other Hanukkah treats.
