Quick Applesauce for One: Chop an apple finely, microwave it briefly with cinnamon and vanilla, mash, and you have super fast applesauce for one person.
If you have an apple, you can have applesauce for one in 5 minutes. And let’s admit upfront that fresh apples deliver a big reward, flavorwise, so this is worth your (little) while.
Sometimes you want a dollop of applesauce on your morning oatmeal, or you need a bit to eat with your pork chop, roast chicken or grilled sausage dinner. You don’t have to open a big jar just to get the amount you need; just let your microwave oven do the quick work for you.
How to make Quick Applesauce for One
The hardest part is cutting the apple, and that isn’t hard. Cut the apple in half, then in quarters. Remove stem, cut out core, and peel each quarter.
Chop the apple finely. If you leave it in big chunks, it takes longer to cook.
Slice the apple thinly into a microwave-safe bowl and sprinkle with cinnamon or a spice blend (use what you have). No sugar is needed for most apples, but suit yourself and add a pinch of sugar, brown sugar or honey if you want to.
Once it has cooked, mash it with a fork until it is as chunky as you like it.
Are you ready to make it? It is so easy.
