This Microwave Applesauce Recipe is quick and easy and makes a scrumptious sauce with apples and cinnamon or plain.
If you are in a hurry and wish to make applesauce, this is probably the fastest method to use.
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!
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.
