I used Golden Delicious apples for this recipe, however many other varieties will work well too.

You can make applesauce using all one type of apple, or mix a few different varieties of apples together, for a really special flavour of sauce!

If you are making applesauce for a diabetic diet, simply substitute a sweetener such as "Splenda" in the place of the sugar.

Microwave Applesauce Recipe


8 medium-large size apples
1 cup water, or more/less depending on apple variety
1/4 cup granulated sugar, or to taste


Peel, core and cut the apples into chunk size pieces.

In a 2 litre size microwave-safe dish, combine the apple chunks and the water.

Cover the dish with a lid or microwave-safe plastic wrap, and microwave on high power for about 15 minutes or until the apples are tender (use a fork to test for tenderness every 5 minutes). If the microwave does not have a turn-table, rotate the dish manually every 5 minutes.

When apples are tender, stir in the sugar and microwave on medium power for an additional 2 minutes to completely dissolve the sugar.

Stir and mash the applesauce with a potato masher (see image below), and set aside to cool a little before serving.

(If a finer/smoother texture of applesauce is desired, simply process the applesauce in the blender).

Makes about 3 cups of delicious microwave applesauce!

Serves 6.

If you wish to freeze the applesauce, simply pour it into freezer-safe containers or sealable bags, and store it in the freezer for up to a year.

If you prefer to can the applesauce, fill the glass jars as per regular/recommended canning/preserving methods and process in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes for pint jars and 20 minutes for quart jars (at altitudes of 0 -1,000 feet) or as per the Canner instructions and recommendations or directions.
