Roasted Applesauce


  • Mix of apples at least 3 pounds, cored (peeled if you have no food mill)
  • Spices optional
  • Water ⅛ to ¼ cup


  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  • Core apples and peel if you don't own a food mill.
  • Add the apples to a large oven safe vessel.
  • Pour in a tiny amount of water to keep the apples from burning on the bottom before they start to soften. Use no more than a ¼ cup water. You just want to barely cover the bottom of your cooking vessel.
  • Add whole cinnamon sticks, ginger, or ground spices (optional)
  • Roast for 30 to 45 minutes until apples are soft. The apple should be easily smashed with the back of a spoon.
  • Run through a food mill to smooth. You could also use a food processor if you like.
  • Serve warm or refrigerate for up to 5 days.
