Raw Applesauce

Walker loved this raw applesauce. Do eat it the day you make it, it will darken if you store it. Kirk used organic Pink Lady apples that I had been given at VegFest this past weekend. I do suggest using organic apples as you are eating the peel, be sure to clean/scrub them before cutting up. Toddlers will love this! Although if they are not used to unsweetened applesauce or if the apples are very tart, consider adding a bit of agave nectar or honey while blending. Included are how we made it in our Vitamix, I have also included food processor directions.

Raw Applesauce

Ingredients:

  • 4 organic apples, cored and quartered
  • 1 lemon, juiced (about 2 Tbsp)
  • Agave nectar or honey, if desired
  • Ground cinnamon, if desired

Directions:

– High speed blender –

Put the apples and lemon juice into the wet Vitamix container and secure the lid. Select Variable 1, turn machine on and turn up to Variable 2 for chunky or Variable 5 for a purée. Blend for 30 seconds, using the tamper to press the apple into the blades.

Sweeten to taste if desired (we didn’t).

– Food processor –

Chop the apples into chunks. Put the processing blade in and add the apples and lemon juice, process until as smooth as you would like. Sweeten to taste if desired.

Serves 4.
