Homemade Applesauce

A wonderful recipe from the Glassman family. Great for Hanukkah latkes or anytime of the year!


  • 3 pounds apples, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 to 1 cup sugar to taste
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 tsp cinnamon or cinnamon sticks


In a large saucepan combine the apples, 1/2 cup water and sugar, bring the liquid to a boil, and simmer the mixture, stirring occasionally and breaking up the apples, for about 20 minutes. Adjust seasoning with lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon. Serve the applesauce warm or chilled.
