The tartness of the lemon or vinegar serves to intensify the taste of the apples, and helps balance out the sweetness of the sauce.

Canned applesauce is the food prepared from comminuted or chopped apples (Malus domestica Borkhausen), which may or may not be peeled and cored, and which may have added thereto one or more of the optional ingredients specified in paragraph (a)(2) of this section.

Applesauce is very good if the whole apple is cooked skin, core (unless wormy), and seeds-then strained through a colander or sieve.

The applesauce I make is smooth and moderately thick—it mounds softly on a spoon.

Adding more applesauce makes for a gummy cake and fresh apples add too much moisture.

  • Applesauce isn’t wildly available?! Lol, where do you live where it’s sparse? I’ve never been to a store and not seen applesauce. That’s weird…����‍♀️

  • I just made this recipe for Apple butter. I started yesterday with peeling cutting and starting it in the crock pot.. all I want to say is OMG IT IS SO GOOD. I’m canning it as I write this..thk you for all you do

  • I didn’t even have to watch the video to give it a thumbs up at the start, and this recipe is very smart! Good job and keep up the great ideas and resourceful techniques.

  • I love doing applesauce with a food mill. I never core or peel and end up with deliciously smooth sauce. I also can do huge batches to freeze.

  • I love this video! It was simple, and to the point! Every other video I saw was way too long and they put all sorts of other things in the apple sauce that was unnecessary. Thx for this. I’m now a subscriber!

  • im making this tomorrow for new years eve, had good results with mango chutney so cannot go far wrong. love it simple basic no nonsense…thanks

  • I just love your videos. Simple no time consuming and very delicious too! I do adjust your recipes to my taste as I don’t like too sweet. Thank you! And finally I remembered to subscribe:)

  • Hi Gemma,

    Do you have any recipe video that uses any of your egg substitutes? It will be easier to follow, once it’s visually shown how it’s made for one time, so that it can be followed every other time by us:)

    Just a kind request ��


  • If I only they would give you as many apple sauce cup as you want cuz I love apple sauce soooo mutch that’s like the only thing I would eat wen I was little! Mom:what do you want to eat nuggets or they have Mack and cheese! Me:apple sauce!

  • Just made it without any sugar and it tastes fine without it. 1/4 cup of sugar is a lot for 4 apples, especially considering apples already have plenty of sugar already in them.

  • It’s this kind of recklessness that drops your viewer count when inspired by other sources in the same media. You guys should have waited a couple of months before uploading this video.

  • Yes, Hetvi Dhamella. Applesauce will work as a a substitute for eggs in many baking recipes. Allow 1/3 cup applesauce for 1 egg, or 1/4 cup applesauce plus 1 teaspoon baking powder.

  • I love your inclusion quotient.. making us feel we are part of one big family.. irrespective of where we are in the world.. Thankyou

  • I actually wanted to make apple sauce so I did that and turns out I made apple syrup LMAO WTH ��

    Best �� accident �� ever

    Great tutorial btw just didn’t follow the instructions correctly

  • Quick tip: Pour your apple sauce on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, spread it out thin and then dehydrate in the oven for simple yet delicious fruit roll ups.

  • Would I still be able to do this with frozen apples? I was given a huge box of apples, and I didn’t want them to go to waste, so I cored, cleaned, and froze them.

  • Your applesauce recipe works without the sugar, right? After all, the apples are already so sweet naturally, and there’s really no need to add to it. Yes, it may require a little adjustment to your expectations, but sugar interferes with the inherent sweetness of the apple itself.

  • I’ve made 3 recipes of yours so far (because i suck at baking and i don’t want to ruin a nice recipe) i followed this recipe and i cannot believe how amazing this is! I made it with no sugar and it’s natural sweetness is incredible. Loved it!!! I’ll recommend it ��

  • Please please please for the sake of your children and your health do not use a microwave do some research on what microwaves do to the body

  • With the recent events in the world it’s nice to be versatile and the shelves of stores being cleared I never knew how to do this now I do….thank you!!!!

  • It’s really annoying when people say “who watches who’s not a mum?” Or “ I’m a kid not a mum but I still watch who else?” It’s really annoying �� anyone else agree?

  • my grandad used to make such good apple sauce before he died when i was 4 but the recipe was literally apples and sugar but it was so good

  • Hello Stephanie I really appreciated ur accuracy, telling us home much cups it will yield and so on really ur the best love from Cairo

  • Now if only tasty wouldnt skip te part of sterilizing the glasses and making it safe to keep it for way longer than 10 days… Would it be that difficult to add that or do you not trust your viewers to do so and later complain about it going bad….

  • love this song! its so underrated… just added to my playlist, come vibe on similar undiscovered gems:)

  • Hi i just made your apple sauce recipe and it was good. I am going to use this sauce for the apple sauce bread that you have. Thank you

  • I like the type of apple sauce that you buy in the shop and that apple sauce product with the red something idk what the company is called but I like that type

  • This looks perfect to add in a carrot cake recipe. I’ll try making this sauce to add to my cake batter for extra moist. Hopefully it’ll be good!

  • just TRY and tell me the “grass stains” part didn’t sound like rex orange county. you cant. you know why? because it sounded EXACTLY like him.

    and i know there’s gonna be some smart alec that goes “it doesnt sound like him” just to spite me

  • For a Zero Waste version just use the old apples that doesn’t look that beautiful anymore and you would probably just throw away. It will taste the same or a little sweeter because of the ripeness and no it won’t make you sick if you just cut the bad spots away!:)

  • I just boiled Granny Smith apples and when I drained them and placed them in a bowl there was a lot of liquid in the bowl I placed them in. Do I have to drain that extra liquid? TY!

  • Sadly outside of England you cannot get real BRAMLEY Apples, these are the only apples for the sauce. Also if you can get an organic unwaxed Lemon, just use the rind rather than juice, it gives a much more subtle taste to the finished sauce.

  • I don’t know whether you are still receiving notice of comments but here goes wishing for the best. You mentioned that Apple sauce can be substituted for eggs, please explain cheers

  • I put my apples in the microwave for two minutes put them in the cup with like 3 teaspoons of water and then I put like 1/4 cup of sugar blended and chilled in the freezer. Edit: it was so good (also I only used one apple)

  • Making applesauce is one of my favorite things. Besides the fond memories of making it with my dad as a child, it’s a yummy treat. Growing up, I always believed applesauce was pink, as we never peeled the apples. I will eat it pretty much anyway, but the homemade pink is my preferred one ❤

  • I do enjoy your informative videos indeed. Last night I dreampt that I was walking along a farmers field and row by row were a different assortment of apples for anyone to take. Oh well, great recipe by the way.

  • This was sooo good �� �� I used honey instead to make it a bit healthier and added 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg for extra flavor and it came out delicious �� will definitely make it again ����

  • Mmmm, fresh, warm applesauce is the best!
    My grandma made it on the stove when I was a teenager, I didn’t know if I would like it warm (I’d only ever had it cold from the fridge), but after that first bite, that’s the only way I want it! ��

  • If you have some English friends get them to send you some BRAMLEY apples, this is the only variety for Apple Sauce. They freeze well, so should reach you in good condition if sent by express delivery.

  • I lost weight and curbed my appetite by just adding something to apple sauce. I eat anything I want. I just get full sooner naturally.
    I really love apple sauce. I have at least 2 cups daily.

  • Hey Gemma! First of all I love all your videos, great work there, keep doing it!! About the recipe.. Can this applesauce be used as a side dish for meat? Or would it be too sweet for the purpose?

  • Thank you for your question, Joyce. The apple sauce is likely to be too runny and loose to be used as a filling. If you wish to use it, we would recommend thickening first. Let us know how it works.

  • This is what my mom would do when I was sick. Have to eat something easy on the stomach and would make unsweetened applesauce and eat it hot. So yeah sick right now and thank goodness i have apples on hand.

  • Jesus Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again to save us from eternal judgement and give us eternal life if we believe Him. Only God can save us and freely give us new life inside forever.

  • I have a recipe that called for applesauce but had none in the house. Just happened to see your video on Making Applesauce. Good thing I have four different apple treez in the garden. I have never made applesauce before so thank you so much for the recipe. I made oatmeal apple raisin muffins with applesauce in the recipe and it was even more flavorful and delicious than canned Applesauce. I also use applesauce as a substitute for oil in a cake recipe so one more reason to make your own applesauce. Thanks for all the little tips you give in your videos.

  • If I wanted to convert this all into apple butter. Would I need to just 2x the ingredients for the apple butter (nutmeg, vanilla cinnamon, brown sugar) or would I 1.5x the ingredients instead? Would appreciate opinions and answers

  • My grandmother made the most delicious applesauce ever. Unfortunately I don’t know the recipe, I’m going to ask my mother come to think of it but the biggest plus was that she put some apricots in it, n cooked them together. I suspect the only other ingredients was sugar n maybe salt. You’ve GOT to try it

  • I made apple butter 2 weeks ago and I find that it’s better and gets even more thick when you leave the skin on the apples. Also, I use pumpkin spice seasoning instead of nutmeg. Y’all ever tried some on low fat cottage cheese? It’s everything ��


    The two major types of cinnamon used in food preparation are Ceylon cinnamon and Cassia cinnamon. Ceylon cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum or Cinnamomum zeylanicum), native to Sri Lanka, is also known as “true cinnamon.” This is NOT the predominant spice typically sold as cinnamon in the United States.

  • This just took me back to my childhood. We had a family friend named May. She was elderly and made the best homemade applesauce, AND she knew how much I loved it! She would make some, just to be nice.

    It wasn’t until I was an adult, and she passed long ago that I realized she was having more fun watching me eat it, than I had eating it.

    It’s strange how food can bring memories rushing back. She used a little cinnamon, a dash of nutmeg, and a lot of love.

  • My son has been askimg me to make him some apple sauce for a few days now. I found your video and it turned out great. He went and got his sister and now I am a cool daddy. Woohoo…

    We used granny smith apples.

  • Thank you for your question. The full recipe makes four servings. Using two apples instead of four, will give you two full servings. Enjoy!

  • hi gemma, i had made cake flour, bttermilk and corn syrup all worked for me. thank u. can u make jam sugar or explain what is it> its used in a meringue

  • This is really kinda pathetic. (Don’t even try that “coincidence” bullshit. Not buying) Chef John does it [email protected] don’t find it strange or “fishy” that he releases his “apple butter” video.. and whaddya know… I guess people are right… Buzzfeed aka: Tasty, is running out of legit, genuine ideas. smh. So lame.

  • SUGAR!? Are you fucking crazy! No wonder your “little brother” loves your applesauce. It’s all fucking sugar. You are a total ass.

  • amazon �� ����������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������

  • Hi if you’re reading this. Please remember you’re strong ��and I hope you are having a blessed day!

    From a small youtube channel! ����

  • Hi. I’m Hispanic and we don’t use to eat apple sauce that much. Maybe this is a dumb question but, May I store apple sauce in Mason jars? I would like to make a big batch but I’m not sure how long they last in room temperature. Thank you.

  • applesauce is easy af to make. wtf you adding butter and sugar for. Just peel the skin off, cut that apple into slices, blend it with some cinnamon and little water so it’s thick enough. Throw into a container and put it in the fridge. Simple. None of that boiling trash.

  • Wow I thought making apple sauce was very complicated and could only be made in factories or something ���� who knew it was this easy? My whole life I’ve been eating processed apple sauce ☹️ thank you for the vid!

  • I don’t know if you have done this before but you should do a video where you switch lives like Brooke could be Elle, Meg could be Brook. and Elle could be Meg or whatever you wanna do. Or each one could film a video doing another one’s thing

  • I was given a bunch of apples and decided it was time to try and make apple sauce. As I scrolled down through the numerous channels I saw yours and stopped. I knew I didn’t need to go any further. I have found your recipes so easy to watch and do. And as an added bonus you mentioned freezing, which was how I wanted to store. Thanks, from a Maine Grammy.

  • Hey Meg, I love all the well explained kid friendly recipes. Thanks a ton cause because of you i learned new recipies. Brooke’s and Elle’s videos are splendid too. Love to whole whatsupmoms family

  • The new house I moved into has a big apple tree in the front yard. Im the family cook so Im commissioned to figure out recipes for the apples we are getting which is lot, almost like drowning in apples due to the tree.. My 3 yr old sister loves picking the apples and sitting in our living room eating them like crazy ��

  • Does it mess up if you peel them? Just to know I can’t eat the peel because the peel has pesticides and I’m allergic to pesticides

  • Sorry but I just cannot handle the narrator something about her voice and inflection made me hit the STOP button about 3 seconds in and search for a different apple sauce vid!


  • Twenty years ago, I planted two Jonathan apple trees I got from Gurney’s nursery as saplings. I have one of those old-fashioned apple peelers that you clamp on the kitchen table. It’s fun to use!  Thanks for the recipe!

  • My ex sent me this song when we were dating. I still miss him and I constantly find myself coming back to this song.

    Edit: We’re back together:)

  • Your the best I’ve seen some other videos and have have to add so many ingredients thanks your video was so much easier and faster

  • hi i made my own apple sauce and used the juice separated but i have a 4 quart slow cooker and i cut and pealed the apples like you did but i added water almost to the top to cover the apples as they were cooking because im a diabetic and it taste good and i dont even add sugar or anything else. i love your video.

  • To anyone who’s done this recipe before: Can you give your best alterations to the recipe that’ll make it actually good. I keep seeing comments on the app about adding less cinnamon or more sugar and I’m getting a little frazzled. And the separating without measuring part doesn’t help either ��

  • The first time ever on me making apple sauce and my husband and family just loved it. Today I am making a lot for the whole family ��

  • My easier version is put cut apples in a blender or magic bullet, put in any spices, blend, and then slow cook it in a sause pan ��

  • OMG!!!!! 2:10 I have the same container at my home but it’s with a lid!!!!!
    I love WUM but I am not even a teen yet but my mom too watches this and we both love WUM!!!!!!

  • Hi, are you looking for more great recipes, both sweet and savoury? Then, make sure to head on over to my channel. Thank you and Have a great day ahead!!!

  • What kind of apples would be best? I live in Asia and therefore, the variety of apples is crazy a lot. I know I can’t use fuji apples, so what would be best?:)

  • If you’re going to make a Dairy-free cake and you can’t find an applesauce at store, you can make your own applesauce with or without slow cooker!

  • 0:32 I will forever be traumatised and disturbed at the fact that that apple wasn’t picked up and put in the pressure cooker. It’s just gonna chill there. And I can’t do anything about it.

  • The local government is giving us bags and bags of apples for quarantine food distribution…. thats why Im here. i always loved applesauce anyway so thank you!!

  • My homemade applesauce has a VERY intense and tart flavor, because I use the classic sauce apple variety, LODI. We have 2 Lodi trees, and every year we make tons of applesauce, and can it unsweetened, so sugar can be added later to taste. And Lodi is so sour, it takes a surprising amount of sugar to sweeten it, it’s every bit as sour as rhubarb.

  • Thank you so much for this recipe! I’ve just recovered from a nasty diarrhea and I tried to make a homemade applesauce to soothe my tummy. I used sweet red apples and just a little bit of sugar and sprinkles of cinnamon and it turned out delicious!

  • Anyone know what kind of apples to use?? Or which ones make the best applesauce? Would love to try and make both of these this weekend.

  • Here she goes again! Screwing up my dieting plans… Ill have to reschedule but frist! Its apple sace time. Pink Ladies are my favourite:D

  • GM Gemma I love Apple sauce so every other week I make it. This weekend I showed my family how to prepare it and they enjoyed it! Now they will be making it too. They were shock as to how easy it was! Thanks again and stay safe Alexandra

  • I had homemade applesauce for lunch, but I never saw a tasty video of making applesauce so I had to trust this random guy.

    Still turned out fine though
