Applesauce served on potato pancakes

Chunky Applesauce

Making homemade applesauce is so simple and the texture and fresh apple flavor is much better than store bought. If you want a chunky applesauce use Granny Smith apples: They take a while to get saucy and have that bright apple flavor. You can mix it up with several kinds of apples, though. Use whatever you have on hand and you’ll be delighted with the results.
