Cinnamon Rhubarb Applesauce

Makes about 8 cups


  • 7-8 apples, peeled, cored and cut into bite-sized chunks (I used a mixture of different varieties)
  • 4 cups chopped rhubarb
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 cinnamon sticks


Place the chopped apples and rhubarb in a large stock pot. Add the water a bit at a time -it should cover the fruit, the maple syrup and the cinnamon sticks and mix well. Bring to a boil on high heat, then reduce the heat to low, partially cover the pot, and let simmer for 30-40 minutes, until the apples are soft.

Once cooked, remove from heat. If you like a chunkier applesauce, mash with a potato masher, or process in a blender until desired consistency. I made it chunky!
