Hanukkah Applesauce


  • 2 1/2 pounds sweet apples such as Rome, Baldwin or McIntosh, cored and quartered
  • 1 1/2 cups water or apple cider
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Lemon juice, freshly squeezed


  1. Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week or frozen for up to six months.
  2. You can leave peels on if you are pureeing the apples in a food mill. Otherwise, peel them.
  3. Combine apples and water or cider in pan over low heat. Cook, stirring a couple of times, until tender, about 25 minutes.
  4. Drain, reserving liquid. Pass through a food mill, adding cinnamon, sugar and juice and from a third to a half cup of cooking liquid for a good consistency. Or puree apples in processor.
