simple apple sauce

Making homemade apple sauce is a pantry staple well-beyond making your own baby food. This recipe was originally featured on Cuisinart.com, where I develop recipes and write their weekly blogs.

Homemade Applesauce
Over the years I’ve found there’s no need to add sweetener to homemade applesauce as long as you choose the right combination of apples. My favorites are Empires and Golden Delicious, but Jonah Golds, Fuji and Gala work well too. It’s also a perfect first food for babies venturing into solids.
Makes 1 1/2 cups

1 Empire apple, peeled and diced
1 Golden Delicous apple, peeled and diced
1/4 cup water

Add ingredients to a small pot and cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer until very tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Mash with fork for a chunky applesauce or puree in a food processor for a smooth texture.
