Basic Applesauce:
8 apples peeled, cored and cut into chunks
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


1. In 2-quart microwave-safe dish, combine apples and water. Cover with lid or vented plastic wrap; microwave on high (100 percent) 12 to 14 minutes or until apples are tender. (If microwave does not have carousel, rotate dish every 4 minutes.) Stir sugar and choice of flavoring.
2. Microwave on high 3 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Stir and set aside to cool before serving. If finer texture is desired, mash or puree apple mixture and put through strainer.

You can customize your homemade applesauce by adding a choice of flavoring, such as vanilla, lemon or spice.
