  3. Turn off the flame, let cool down and blend until smooth in a stand mixer or by using a hand blender. Consume within a few days as it is sugar-free or you can divide this applesauce, freeze it and then use it as needed. If you want to keep it longer transfer boiling hot applesauce to sterile, airtight containers. Close the lid and turn the jars upside down to create the vacuum effect.
