With this homemade applesauce, you control the texture without boiling the nutrients out of the apples. So simple--and so delicious!
- 4 (680 g) apples, seeded, cut into large pieces, with or without peel
- 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) lemon juice
- Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
- Select Variable 1.
- Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 3 for chunky or Variable 5 for a puréed consistency.
- Blend for 10-20 seconds or until apples are chunky or puréed, using the tamper to press the apples into the blades.
This recipe has been written for the C-Series and G-Series machines with Variable Speed control and 64-ounce container. If you are using a different Vitamix machine or container size, you may need to make adjustments to the Variable Speed, processing time, and/or ingredient quantities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bethie from Raw Applesauce After purchasing my Vitamix 8 years ago, I have not bought store-bought applesauce. Why would I even think about buying it when I have this amazing machine to make it in. I would recommend it to anyone who has a Vitamix to make their own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by supergolfdude from Terrific, but so many variations! I love to add frozen fruits (no sugar added) to my applesauce. For example, Two apples plus 10 frozen (thawed) cherries is delicious. I also add in a teaspoon of ground cinnamon and some honey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Badenzerin from Just perfect! Needed some applesauce for a muffin recipe and my Vitamix really came in handy. Of course my Vitamix doesn't get much rest. I use it at least once a day.

Can I substitute lime juice for lemon juice
The lemon juice is just to help preserve the color of the apple sauce. You can use lime juice in its place.

Most apple sauces use cooked apples to make the apples soft. You don't have to cook the apples for this applesauce recipe? Seems odd.
This is a raw applesauce recipe. You can certainly cook the apples if you prefer. You will get a different taste/texture with the cooked apples. We have two different variations of applesauce recipes: Raw: https://www.vitamix.com/Recipes/Applesauce-Raw/C-Series/Variable-Speed/Classic-64-Ounce?referer_st=applesauce&sc=recipe Cooked: https://www.vitamix.com/Recipes/Cooked-Applesauce/C-Series/Variable-Speed/Classic-64-Ounce?referer_st=applesauce&sc=recipe

Can you recommend any particular type of apple please? Thank You
Fuji, McIntosh or Golden Delicious are all great apples for making applesauce and are normally the most readily available.

How long is this good for in the fridge?
Holding things in a refrigerator is a great question all the time. The answers will vary. I always recommend using the product as fast as possible since the flavor, texture will be at it peak. In this particular recipe I would recommend no more than a week. You can look at the USDA website for more information on holding things in the refrigerator and other food related questions.
