It’s fall, and that means it’s apple picking time and Weight Watcher’s applesauce recipe time! This weight watcher’s applesauce recipe no sugar is zero plus points and full of nutrients. It also doesn’t last long in my household.
I have a few trees that naturally grow on my property in the mountains. I’m pretty sure they’re Anna apple trees but haven’t asked an expert yet. They don’t require extra water or much maintenance, and I’ve never sprayed them with pesticides. I let them grow organically.
I share my property with the local deer who try to get to the apples before they’re ripe. Each year, I wait until they get a decent size before I pick them. It takes a lot of apples to make a tub of applesauce. This year I got 5 lbs off my tree, which makes me happy considering they need some serious thinning next year.
After I got the apples home, I washed, peeled and cored them using an awesome Apple peeler corer tool that I purchased on Amazon. It’s called the VICTORIO VKP1011 Apple and Potato Peeler, Clamp Base. I prefer the clamp base because my table has a lot of bumps and ridgets on it. If you prefer the suction cup one then try this link: Johnny Apple Peeler by VICTORIO VKP1010, Suction Base. It took less than 40 minutes to make the applesauce and about the same time for the kids to eat it.
Weight Watcher’s Applesauce Recipe No Sugar
- 5 lbs of apples – peeled, cored and cut
- 1 cup of water (you can add more later if you need to thin it up)
- 5-inch stick of cinnamon (optional)
- In a heavy pot combine apples, water and optional cinnamon.
- Bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat.
- Simmer covered for 30 minutes stirring often.
- Remove the cinnamon stick.
- Remove from heat.
- Use a hand blender to blend it all together.
- Add water or ice to get the consistency you want.
- Let it sit to cool before putting it in the refrigerator.
- Lasts up to 8 months in the freezer.
If you’re blending the applesauce while it’s still very hot, consider wearing gloves to make sure you protect your hands. You can also skip the peeling and coring of the apples and strain it out later. Since I have an apple peeler corer combo tool, I prefer to get it all done before I start cooking.
If you like your applesauce super sweet, then you’ll need to add some sugar. I find that it’s plenty sweet if you use a sweeter apple. Obviously, this weight watcher’s applesauce recipe no sugar won’t be zero points if you do so make sure you add the correct points.
