This applesauce is easy to make and tastes so much better than any commercial brand. Why buy when you can make something that tastes better, costs less and is far healthier?  For other versions go here and here. I used red delicious for this but any sweet apple will work. This will keep in the freezer forever.

Orange Applesauce

  • 4 lbs apples skinned, cored and cut into small dice
  • 1 large orange
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 3-5 tbsp honey

In a large pot zest and juice the orange. Add the apples and cloves and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil then turn heat to medium and cook until apples are soft enough to mash. Mash to desired consistency and add honey to taste. Cook until thick. Serve hot or cold.

    I’ll have to give this one a shot. I love applesauce, but the recipe I use (my grandma’s) is definitely relegated to a “sometimes food” with the amount of sugar in it!

    I would never have thought to put orange in applesauce and it sounds delicious!

    You’re so right, Greg. Once you learn how to make applesauce, there’s really no reason to buy it.
