Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce

Starting to plan your thanksgiving menu? This homemade applesauce menu would be a great addition- especially because it’s so easy to make but yet so homey and YUMMY- after all that what the goal is right? Full HAPPY bellies 🙂

Personally I think best apples to use are golden delicious! I was able to make 5 mason jars (32 quart) filled with homemade sauce from about 20lbs of apples (about 25 apples).  These little jars would make a great gift with Holiday season quickly approaching too.

Peel all skin off apples.

Pour 10 cups of apple cider into pot, then cut and de-core apples.

Start boiling away! Let sit for about 20 to 30 mins. Mash away- based on how lumpy you like your sauce, add cinnamon.


  • 10 cups cider
  • 25 Golden delicious Apples
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

** No sugar for this recipe, thats why we add the cider so that it brings a nice blend of other apples and the golden delicious are sweet!

Enjoy!!! 🙂
