Prepare apples (for added nutrients, leave skins on). Place apples in 1 to 2 cups of apple cider in a large kettle and cook until tender. Carefully pour apples into a heat-resistant blender or food processor and puree. Return mixture to a clean kettle (to prevent sticking) and continue to heat. Sweeten to taste with sugar and honey.

Spice up your sauce with these options:

Raspberry applesauce — Add a handful of fresh or frozen raspberries to apples before cooking.

Cherry applesauce — Add a handful of pitted cherries to apples before cooking.

Cranberry applesauce — Add 1 to 2 cups of cranberries to apples before cooking.

Spiced applesauce — Add apple pie spice at the end of cooking.
