- Core and chop the apples, leaving the skin on. In a large lidded pot, heat the apples with the honey, vanilla, and cinnamon sticks over low heat. Continue to cook with the lid on until the apples are soft, stirring every 5 to 10 minutes, about 30 minutes. If the sauce is too runny at the end, cook for several minutes with the lid off to cook off some of the juices.
- Allow to cool, then remove the cinnamon and puree the applesauce in a food processor or a blender. Applesauce can be refrigerated in an airtight container for a week or frozen for up to 3 months.
