There's something about homemade applesauce that is just better than the kind that comes in a jar. And making it is easier than you think.
Here's the easy recipe for homemade applesauce you can make in your microwave:
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine 1 pound peeled and diced apples (Macintosh, Fuji, or Gala are best) with ¼ cup water, 2 teaspoons sugar, and ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon. Cover and microwave on high (power level 10) until the apples are tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Mash with a fork or potato masher.
