WebMD Recipe from

The natural sweetness apples shines so beautifully in this simple spiced sauce that the inclusion of additional sweeteners is fully unnecessary. Red wine offers a robust addition.

  • cinnamon stick
  • 6 to 8 
    cardamom pods, smashed
  • 1 tablespoon
    whole cloves
  • 3 pounds
    apples, peeled, cored and chopped coarsely
  • 2 cups
    red wine, any will do
  1. Place spices in a 100% cotton muslin bag or cheesecloth tied with a string and set them in a heavy-bottomed saucepan.
  2. Add chopped apples to the saucepan and pour two cups of any red wine you have on hand over the apples.
  3. Gently stew the chopped apples in wine and spices over a low flame until they become soft and so tender they fall apart at the slightest pressure.
  4. Allow the stewed apples to cool to room temperature before running them through a food processor, blender or food mill until the applesauce becomes smooth and uniform.
