Quick Homemade Applesauce-No Sugar Added

Nuvita Biscuits
A quick, easy homemade applesauce recipe that I served with potato latkes this year. It has no added sugar, which makes it a better option for diabetics and low-carb people and others who avoid cane sugar. But if you prefer a sweeter sauce, add 1/2 cup of sugar. I recommend using 1/2 sweet apples and 1/2 tart apples (Granny Smith, for example). Don’t leave out the salt, it’s a necessary ingredient for a good applesauce!
3 lbs apples
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch nutmeg
1 1/2 cups water
2 thin lemon slices
1/4 teaspoon salt

Peel and core apples (I prefer to leave the skin on a few of them because I like the taste and texture). Cut apples into approximately 1 inch cubes.

Add all ingredients to pot, and turn heat on high. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 minutes or until the apples have softened significantly.

Stir frequently, making sure that the apples are not sticking to the bottom of the pot. Add more water if necessary. Remove lemon slices.

Mash with a potato masher or use a food mill for a smoother consistency. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    All you see in the stores for starting baby’s solid food is made by Gerber. Can I give him regular applesauce(maybe with a little less sugar) or mush my own fruits/vegs? Please shed some light.

    Whenever I bake apple pie, the apples always come out soggy, almost like apple sauce. I tried using Golden Delicious apples but the results are the same. How can I keep the apples from turning soggy?
