  • 5 C Ida Red or Paula Red apples, cored, peeled & chunked
  • ¼ C Pioneer® Sugar
  • ¼ C Pioneer® Golden Light Brown Sugar, packed
  • ½ C apple cider or juice
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon


  1. In a large pot add apples, Pioneer® Sugar, Pioneer® Golden Light Brown Sugar, apple cider and cinnamon; stir together. Cover and cook on medium heat; stirring occasionally.
  2. When mixture starts to boil, remove the lid. As soon as the apples are soft, begin to crush them with the back of the spoon or use a potato masher.
  3. Turn the heat down and simmer. Allow the applesauce to reduce so that there is a minimal amount of liquid left. When the mixture starts to thicken, it will require a little more attention and stirring. When the sauce is the desired consistency, turn off the heat. Serve warm.

Cook's Note
