No Sugar Recipe for Kids: Grandma’s Homemade Applesauce

My Grandma’s Homemade Applesauce


When I was a little girl, my Grandma taught me one of her mottos: “Waste not, want not.” She was reducing, reusing, and recycling before it was cool – a real trendsetter! One of the ways that my Grandma puts this motto into practice is by turning nearly overripe fruit into applesauce. Instead of throwing the fruit away, she turns it into a delicious, healthy treat – with no added sugar!


I used Red Delicious apples, for this applesauce but you can use whatever type you have handy. You can add sugar or cinnamon as desired, but my kinds and I found it to be sweet enough just on its own. This recipe made about 2 servings.

Thank you to my beautiful, 91-years-young Grandma for this wonderful, kid-friendly applesauce recipe.
