As soon as your apples are are cooked, immediately run them through a meat grinder like I did in the picture below, or place them in a food mill or strainer. I don’t have a food mill or a strainer so I thought I’d try the meat grinder and see if that would work. It did and it was so easy and fast!
Once you have run the apples through one of the options above, you need to stir in the sugar while the applesauce is still hot so it dissolves. As to how much sugar, it all depends on the apples and your taste. So I’d start my tasting the applesauce before you add any sugar. Then add sugar until it tastes nice and sweet to you.
Then place it in containers and let it cool completely before you put the lids on them and place them in the freezer.
Very simple to do, but it is delicious! When you want to thaw a container, you can either place it in the refrigerator to thaw in there or if you are in a hurry, I place it in the microwave and defrost it for a few minutes. Enjoy!
