With apple season in full swing, I wanted to make a batch of applesauce.  But not just any applesauce.  An applesauce that wholesome and delicious at the same time using only four ingredients served in individual portion control containers.

In the past, I have made applesauce with loads of sugar, not this time.  

When making applesauce, the variety of apples is important.  I like to use apples on the sweet side and ones on the tart side too.  This gives a better balance of flavor and texture.  

The sweet apples will break down more whereas the tart apples will not.  The variety of apples I used in this recipe are granny smith and gala.

I cooked the applesauce on the stove in a heavy gauge dutch oven.   If you don't have one, a crockpot will do.

The cooking time varies depending on several factors, type of apples used, how many apples used, and the texture desired.

I sometimes peel the apples, and sometimes I just leave the peeling on.  This time I peeled the apples.

I added the chopped apples to the dutch oven and poured the Zevia cream soda over them, add the cinnamon sticks, and the secret ingredient.

Swerve powdered sugar.  That's right!

The smoothness of the Swerve powdered sugar adds a lovely sweetness that is not too sweet.  Just right.

I start them cooking on medium-high temperature for 30 minutes and then turned the burner down to simmer and cooked them for a couple of hours stirring and mashing them down with a potato masher to make the sauce texture.

We like our applesauce chunky, but if you like it smooth, use an immersible blender or pour the applesauce into an upright blender and blend on high until you reach the texture you like.

I hope you get to make some individual serve applesauce soon.  It is so much better than store-bought.  Enjoy!
