Apple Sauce Sweetened


Applesauce is not only an important ingredient in vegan baking but has other varied uses too.

One second, Apple Sauce or Apple Spread? Well, I think it’s both and even more. But whatever you call it, one thing is sure that it is packed with the natural goodness of the fruit, and you will love it when touched by your palette.

This Apple Sauce I tried tasted divine. Though I made it unsweetened only but just for trial, added jaggery in some and voila, I loved that too! 

The sweetened one tasted more or less like Jam, and, today, I had bread, not 1 or 2 but 3 slices at a go with this sauce cum jam after ages and I just loved it. It’s such a simple recipe that you won’t mind trying it out, as you can try it with just 1 apple too. Though I am sure after trying, it will be your staple recipe for apple sauce cum jam and you will make it often.

    Unsweetened Applesauce

    An easy, quick and healthy recipe to make Apple Sauce, either sweetened or unsweetened.


    Unsweetened Apple Sauce

    • 2 Apples roughly 350 g
    • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon Powder Optional
    • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

    Sweetened Apple Sauce

    • 100 g Jaggery Powder


    Unsweetened Apple Sauce

    • Wash the apples, pat dry.
    • Remove its core and roughly chop into pieces. No need to peel.
    • Add 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 1/8th cup water and pressure cook these for 1 whistle on medium flame.
    • When pressure is released, mash the apples using a potato masher (or in the blender).
    • Cook it for few minutes so that extra moisture, if any is evaporated.
    • Unsweetened apple sauce is ready. Use it as it is or let it cool down completely.
    • When cools down, fill it in jars and keep it in the refrigerator.

    Sweetened Apple Sauce

    • To make it sweetened, after mashing the cooked apples, add jaggery powder and cinnamon.
    • Cook on slow flame till jaggery is dissolved fully.
    • Once the jaggery is dissolved, increase the flame and boil the jam briskly stirring often.
    • When it stops bubbling and spluttering then check for its doneness.
    • For this, take little on a cool plate, let it cool. If liquid separates out then cook for some more time. If sets and there is no liquid then it is set.
    • Switch off the flame. Let it cool down completely.
    • Fill this sweetened sauce in jar and store it in the refrigerator.
    • Serve with love, bread optional.


    1. I used very less jaggery powder as we prefer less sweet. You may increase the quantity little if you feel less sweet.
    2. Water is added while boiling as it helps to form the steam.
    3. If using an electric blender then let the apples cool down first.
    4. Jaggery is dissolved on low flame otherwise it might crystallize.
    5. Jam boiled quickly on high flame has a better texture and flavor.
    6. If you do not want the peels, then roughly chop the apples, cook, mash and pass through a strainer. Thereafter, add jaggery powder and cinnamon and proceed as above. This is because apple peels have a high content of pectin and we do not want to lose it.
