Serves: 20


  • 3 pounds apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • Juice and zest of 1 orange
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 nutmeg
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon ground clove


  • Place all ingredients in a heavy-bottomed pot. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 30-35 minutes, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender.
  • Slightly mash apple chunks, if desired. Serve applesauce warm or cold.
  • Refrigerate leftovers.
  • Tip: Try a mix of Granny Smith and McIntosh apples. The McIntoshes will cook down to a saucy consistency, while the Granny Smiths will hold their shape.
