Homemade applesauce is far superior to store-bought brands in terms of both nutrition and taste, and it’s super easy to make. This SkinnyMs. recipe doesn’t even require sugar, as the precise amount of apples make the level of sweetness just right. Serve it as a side dish with pork chops. If you want to save your applesauce, it will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week. You can also can it for a longer shelf life.
