DIY applesauce is always a fantastic addition to any meal you serve your family. You can use it instead of oil for baking, combine this nutrient-rich snack with Greek yogurt, or even pair it with your favorite pork chop recipe. But the best part?
You can do it all in your handy microwave! Simply peel and chop 1 to 2 apples, then add them to a microwave-safe bowl. Cover with about 1 to 2 cups of water and microwave on high for roughly 5 minutes or so.
Stir and continue to microwave until your apples have softened. Drain, then use a food processor, blender, or potato masher to make a puree. Be sure to add some cinnamon or honey for extra flavor to this microwave-friendly dish!
