Homemade applesauce is so easy, and so much better than jarred applesauce, let me tell you. It's a must with crispy golden latkes. I like to combine two or three apple varieties for flavor- Golden Delicious, Granny Smith and Macintosh. Sometimes I add pears.
8-9 assorted apples - peeled, cored and chopped
1 cup unsweetened 100% organic apple juice or pear cider
1/2 cup water, more if needed
A small pinch of fine sea salt
1 tablespoon agave nectar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, or to taste
Place the chopped apples in a large saucepan and add the apple juice and enough water to barely cover the apples. Add a pinch of sea salt. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook the apples until they are fork-tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Mash the apples with a potato masher. Stir in the agave and cinnamon. Continue to cook over low heat until the apples are soft and all the excess liquid has cooked off; about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
Serve at room temperature; or cover and store in an air-tight container and chill.
