Baked Applesauce

Ingredients

  • 6 cups (660 g) cored and cubed Cortland apples
  • 6 cups (660 g) cored and cubed McIntosh apples
  • 3 tbsp (40 g) sugar

Preparation

  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat (see note).
  2. Place the cubed apples on the prepared sheet and bake for 1 hour or until tender, stirring twice during baking.
  3. In a food processor, purée the warm apples with the sugar until smooth. Pass through a sieve, if desired.

Note

We prefer using a silicone mat when baking the apples to keep them as moist as possible.
