Homemade is a Great Way to Know What is in Your Food

Applesauce As An Oil Alternative in Recipes

In many baking recipes applesauce can be used for part of the oil. Generally, when making quick breads, brownies, or cakes, half of the oil can be replaced with applesauce. I find that it gives the recipe a bit more moisture.

Refrigerate, Freeze, or Can

This homemade applesauce can be refrigerated and eaten within a few weeks. If you do not plan on eating it that quickly, then it can be canned. Lastly, for quick long term storage, they can be frozen and enjoyed later.

Doesn’t This Look Yummy?
