Making your own applesauce is easy—and the perfect topping for your latkes.

Makes about 6 cups


6 large tart apples (Gravenstein, Pippin, Granny Smith, etc.)
1 cup undiluted apple juice concentrate
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


For chunky applesauce, peel apples, then core and dice. Place in a large pan. Add apple juice concentrate, then cover and cook over low heat, stirring often, until apples are soft. Mash slightly with a fork if desired, then stir in cinnamon.

For smoother applesauce, cut apples into quarters and remove cores. Chop finely in a food processor. Transfer to a pan and add apple juice concentrate and cinnamon. Cover and cook, stirring often, over low heat until tender, about 15 minutes.

Slow cooker method: Place diced or chopped apples in slow cooker with 1/2 cup of apple juice concentrate and cinnamon. Cover and cook on high for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
