You can either sieve for fine applesauce, or stop at the mash step for chunky applesauce.
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Mix together in a saucepan:
Bring the ingredients to a boil. Turn down the heat to medium. Stir and simmer until the apples are soft.
Mash the soft apples (you can enjoy them at this stage or...)
Sieve them and enjoy the strained apple sauce (students even liked to eat the mash left after sieving)
