This 2-ingredient applesauce from the authors of the new cookbook "The Teen Kitchen" is almost too easy!

We also highly recommend you try it in their Carrot Cake Pancakes.

  • 5 large apples, preferably Fuji
  • ½ cup apple juice


Serves: Makes 4 cups


Core the apples and chop them into 1-inch cubes. (You don’t need to peel them.) Be sure to use as much of the apple as possible.

Add the apples and apple juice to a large saucepan. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the apples are soft.

Remove from heat and let the apples cool for 5 minutes. Add the apples and their juice to a blender and blend to the desired consistency; serve warm or chilled. This will keep in the refrigerator for 5 days and in the freezer for a month.
