This simple spiced apples recipe is perfect for so many applications. The tender, brown sugar-sweetened fruit slices are great served at breakfast, make for a warm and tasty side dish (especially for kiddos), are the ideal flavor complement spooned over pork chops or a pork loin, and are an amazing seasonal addition to a bowl of vanilla ice cream. If you can’t find McIntosh apples, substitute another baking apple such as Rome or Gala; or to change things up, try a crisp, tart green apple such as Granny Smith.

Is it possible to make sugar from apple slices?
I saw someone else post that you could dehydrate apple slices, and then grind those into a powder to make “apple sugar.” To me, that sounds like an easier process than pureeing apples and then drying the puree.
How to make applesauce at home?
Instructions Wash your apples. Quarter and core the apples, but do not peel them. Slice the apples into smaller pieces, unless you have a super powerful blender. Add your apples to a blender or food processor in small batches. I use a Magic Bullet. Add just enough water to puree the raw apples.
How do you sweeten apples with sugar and water?
If you prefer the apples with less or no sugar, just up the amount of water to 100ml, adding more if the mixture dries out during cooking. Sweeten to taste with sugar, honey, maple syrup or agave once the apples are soft.
