Skip the packaged containers of applesauce that often contain lots of sugar and, therefore, calories. Make your own in a snap. Serve at healthy meals that include roast lean pork or turkey or with a sandwich at lunch.


  • 6 tart apples, such as Granny Smith or McIntosh, peeled and cubed
  • 2 sweet apples, such as Golden Delicious or Fuji, peeled and cubed
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (don’t use artificial maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Place the apples, water and cinnamon in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat so the mixture simmers. Cover and cook for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Mash the apples or puree them in a food processor with the maple syrup.
