Making Applesauce With a Food Processor


Preparing the Apples

  • Apples for applesauce can be left unpeeled, if desired, but should always be cored. Once cored, apples are sliced into chunks that can easily fit into the food processor.

Pureeing the Apples

  • Once prepared, the apples are placed into the food processor along with any additional ingredients for the applesauce. A bit of lemon juice is often included, as well as sugar, cinnamon and a dash of vanilla extract. The amounts of each vary according to the type of apple used and the preferences of the person making the applesauce.

Cooking the Apples

  • Once the apples and the additional ingredients are pureed, the sauce should be poured into a microwave-safe bowl. The applesauce can be heated in the microwave for 3 to 5 minutes to slightly cook the apples and heat the sauce before serving.

Serving the Applesauce Raw

  • Alternately, applesauce prepared in a food processor can be served as is, with no heating or cooking of any kind. Once pureed, all you have to do is pour the applesauce into serving bowls and serve. If not ready to serve immediately, the applesauce should be placed into an airtight container and refrigerated until served.
