Chunky Applesauce Recipe
Diabetic Friendly Recipe
A nice and satisfying chunky applesauce sweetened with sugar substitute. Spiced with sweet cinnamon. Using the chunky applesauce you can make the delicious cherry apple cherry chutney that follows the applesauce recipe.
30 medium tart apples, peeled and quartered
4 cups water
2 tablespoons cinnamon
8 teaspoons pourable sugar substitute
Place apples and water in a large kettle. Cover and cook over medium heat 30 to 40 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from heat.
Using a potato masher, mash apples to desired consistency. Stir in cinnamon and sweetener.
Feel free to experiment with the amount of cinnamon according to your taste preferences. But don't over-do the first time, as cinnamon can be over-powering when too much is used. The picture on the spoon above is heavier on the cinnamon, while the picture below follows the exact recipe amount.
Might we suggest Organic Ground Cinnamon instead of the usual store-bought? It is fresh, wholesome and brimming with sweet cinnamon flavor.
