While our family tends to love their applesauce a bit chunky, this one definitely met our standard for taste. I think one of the pluses was that I used an amazing raw honey I found on Abe's Market (one of my favorite healthy online stores).
Spice Creamed Honey trio from Vintage Bee is literally all the sweet, comforting flavors of fall captured in jars. I love discovering small, family-run businesses with quality products and lots of integrity.
Their Apple Spice honey was the perfect thing to add a touch of sweetness to this easy applesauce. Their delectable products are paleo-compliant, as they use only raw honey and organic spices and fruits to flavor it.
Plain raw honey would also work too, as would some pure maple syrup. If you don't own a high-powered blender like a Vitamix, I would suggest peeling your apples prior to blending. Even with my power house, I still had to add the apples gradually as all together they jammed up the works a bit.
6 large apples, cored and cut into chunks (peeled if you don't have a high-powered blender)
3 tbs. raw honey (or more, to taste)
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4-1/2 tsp. cinnamon, to taste
Combine all ingredients in blender and process until smooth. Serve room temperature, chilled or warm up before eating.
