Applesauce is a snack that so many of us loved as children but have never actually made ourselves. As it turns out, it’s not only delicious, but it’s also easy to make for you or your kids. Why is it “Paleo?” Because there is no added sugar.
Peel the apples, cut off rotten spots and remove the core. Cut the fruits into pieces and place them in a large pan. Add the apple and lemon juice and mix everything. Halve the vanilla pod lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Add the cinnamon sticks and vanilla pod to the apples. Cook on a low heat and bring to a boil. Simmer gently for approximately 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally. Remove the cinnamon sticks and the vanilla pod. Puree the fruits with a hand blender (or leave chunky if you like it that way) and boil the puree again with constant stirring. Immediately fill in the sterilized jars and seal them airtight.
