Freezer Applesauce

Servings 8 cups


  • 6 pounds apples about 20-24 medium size apples*
  • 1 cup apple juice all natural juice, cider or water
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed, (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)


  1. Peel, core and slice each apple into at least 8 wedges. We use an apple slicer/corer to make quick work of this process.

  2. Combine all ingredients in a large pot and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 20-30 minutes.
  3. Once the apples are nice and soft, puree the mixture using an immersion blender or in a food processor or blender until smooth or until desired consistency is achieved. *Complete in batches - do not fill more than half full when processing the hot mixture in a blender or food processor.

  4. Freeze in desired portions in freezer safe containers or freezer bags.
