How Long it Will Take with Kid Chefs
20 minutes active + 25 minutes simmer time (45 minutes total)
About 3 cups of applesauce
Serves 4 people as snack or side dish
Suggested Serving Size
About ¾ cup per person
Optional: use this applesauce as a topping for our Banana Pumpkin Pancake recipe
If you want to make the two recipes at the same time, here's how that works:
Start applesauce (peel and chop apples, put on stove to simmer)
Finish applesauce (take off stove and mash)
Eat both together!
Any variety will work. We're partial to Honeycrisp because of its natural sweetness.
Grown-up Pro Tips
This recipe includes a lot of peeling and dicing. Younger or less experienced kid chefs might take a while to complete these tasks. Be ready to jump in and assist with both to make it go faster!
The recipe suggests that you'll need to simmer the applesauce for 20-30 minutes, but it could take shorter or longer depending on the water content of your apples. It's done when the apples are soft enough to mash with a fork.
