This applesauce is a simply classic recipe, but it can be dressed up with the raisin mix-in.
Place the apples in a large Dutch oven. Add water, sugar, and cinnamon. Set on medium – low heat and simmer until tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and puree with a rotary beater on slowest speed to the desired consistency.
Stir in the raisins. When the sauce has cooled, pour it into a glass or plastic container and store in the refrigerator. Serve either warm or cold.
