Apple sauce (or applesauce) is a purée made of cooked or baked apples. It can be made with peeled or unpeeled apples and a variety of spices (commonly cinnamon and allspice). Fruit flavorings or sweeters such as sugar, high fructose corn syrup, or sucralose are also commonly added. Apple sauce can be fine or chunky. It is easily produced at home by using a mill, sometimes called a sauce-master (invented by Sir Richard Harlow[citation needed]). Commercial versions of apple sauce are readily available in supermarket stores. It may be packaged in glass jars, aluminum cans, plastic, or any ceramic material. It is also sold in serving-size small plastic cups, often for children.

Apple sauce is used as an accompaniment to a main course, usually ham, pork or bacon. Swedes normally eat apple sauce as a condiment for roast pork and for breakfast, such as oatmeal, muesli and a buttermilk-like product called filmjölk, In Germany it accompanies potato pancakes. In the Netherlands it is popular with children to give their stamppot, potatoes or fries more flavor.

Apple sauce is used during the Jewish festival of Hanukkah as a sauce for latkes, usually topped with cinnamon to give it more flavor. The cinnamon gives it its unique taste.

Apple sauce is often eaten by babies, children with braces and or expander, and the elderly[citation needed] because it does not need to be chewed. It is sometimes recommended to combat diarrhea, since it is high in pectin.[1] Apple sauce can also be used as an alternative ingredient for many foods such as brownies and cake.[citation needed]
