Chunky Homemade Applesauce
Health Highlights


10 medium Apple (peeled, cored, cut into 1-inch chunks)
1/4 cup packed Brown sugar (plus 2 tbsp)
3 tbsp Butter, unsalted (cut into chunks)
1/2 tsp Cinnamon (for serving)


Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Place the apples in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Scatter the the brown sugar and chunks of butter evenly over top. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 45-50 minutes, tossing once halfway through, until the apples are very tender.

Mash the apples with a potato masher or fork. Taste; if the applesauce is too tart, add more brown sugar little by little until the flavours are balanced. (Note that no two batches will ever be the same; the flavour will depend on the tartness of the apples you use.)

Serve and enjoy!
