Instant Applesauce (Both Plain and Flavored)

Using Dried Apples, Save TONS of Money and Make Your Own in Minutes

Do you know how to make applesauce from dried apples? This is so easy your kids can do it!

1 cup dried apples
1 cup boiling water


  1. Combine apples and boiling water in a large bowl.
  2. Let stand 10-15 minutes.
  3. Add any flavor you wish (under Varieties/Flavors). Mash or blend well. I just use my stick blender.


It’s it—Done! How easy was that?


  • Add 3 tbsp. cinnamon heart candy to the mixture before you let it set
  • Try some cinnamon and sugar mixture in it
  • Apple Pie Spice Blend and sugar is delicious
  • Add sugar to taste or leave unsweetened
  • OR you know all those FLAVORED apple sauces you buy in the store? You got it…FRUIT POWDERS! Start with 1 tablespoon and increase to your taste.

Applesauce for Babies

Fruit MUST be cooked for babies as they do not the digestive juices we do. This method is also for older folks and people with health challenges.

1 cup dried apples
1 cup boiling water
1 tablespoon fruit powder, your choice (optional)


  1. Put apples in the saucepan (and fruit powder if using) and cover them with water. Bring to a boil, then turn down and simmer until they are tender, about 15 minutes. Add more water, if necessary, to keep the apple slices covered.
  2. Drain the apples and remove from pan. Mash or grind the apples into applesauce consistency and return them to the pan. Simmer the applesauce over low heat for about three minutes.
  3. Store leftover applesauce in the refrigerator.

  1. What kind of apple do you use

    1. Admin says:

      Whatever kind you want.

      I use whatever is in-season or on sale as long as it is a firm apple. When I use a more firm apple, like Granny Smiths, I prefer to peel them. When using a more tender skinned apple like Gala, Honeycrisp, Red or Yellow Delicious, or if you don’t mind the peel, leave them unpeeled. May also cut apples into chunks.
