  • 4 lbs of apples (about 7 to 10 apples, depending on the size), peeled, cored, and quartered (use apple varieties that are good for cooking such as Granny Smith, Braeburn, Fuji, or Golden Delicious)

  • 1 cup (250 mL) water

  • 1 tsp (5 mL) ground cinnamon

  • 14 tsp (1.25 mL) salt

  • 13 cup (80 mL) Truvía® Calorie-Free Sweetener


  • 1.

    Peel, core and quarter apples.

  • 2.

    In a large saucepan combine apples, water, cinnamon and Truvía® Calorie-Free Sweetener.

  • 3.

    Bring to a boil on high heat, cover and reduce heat to a low simmer for 25-35 minutes or until the apples are completely tender and cooked through.

  • 4.

    Remove the pot from the heat.

  • 5.

    Use a potato masher to mash the cooked apples in the pot to make a chunky applesauce. For a smoother applesauce, purée them in a blender. (Do small batches and do not fill the blender bowl more than halfway.)
