This sweet applesauce almost tastes like apple pie without the crust! My family can't resist digging into this side dish at dinnertime.


  • 30 medium tart apples, peeled and quartered (about 11 pounds)
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • Sugar substitute equivalent to 8 teaspoons sugar


  1. Place apples and water in a large kettle. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 30-40 minutes or until apples are tender; remove from the heat. Using a potato masher, mash apples to desired consistency. Stir in cinnamon and sweetener. Serve warm or cold.
