Savory Applesauce

Source: Everyday Food, October 2005


  • 3 pounds apples, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Peel, core, and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices 3 pounds apples (try a combination of Gala, Golden Delicious, and McIntosh). In a large saucepan, combine apples with 1 cinnamon stick, 2 to 4 tablespoons sugar, and 3/4 cup water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender, 30 to 35 minutes. (If sauce begins to stick to the bottom of the pan, add 2 to 4 tablespoons more water.)

  2. Remove from heat; discard cinnamon stick. Stir in 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice and 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish. Season with coarse salt and ground pepper.
