Ingredients

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a medium or large stock pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for 35-45 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until carrots are tender when pricked with a fork. Let cool slightly.
  • Transfer all ingredients to a blender or a food processor and pulse until you have reached your desired consistency. For toddlers and family applesauce, I just pulsed for 20 seconds until just blended and there was still some chunkiness to it. For baby, you can puree for 1-2 minutes until smooth and creamy.

Notes on Apples: I left my apples peel on the apples for a more fiber (and cuz I am lazy) but you can peel the apples if you prefer.
