Nutritional information is only an estimate. The accuracy of the nutritional information for any recipe on this site is not guaranteed.


  • 6 Lb. Apples, a variety peeled, cored, and cut into chunks
  • 1 Cup Sugar free Apple juice or apple cider
  • 1 Lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 Cup Swerve brown sugar, packed
  • 1 Tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Tsp. Freshly ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2+ Tbsp. Pecans, chopped (Optional)


  • Combine all ingredients except the nuts in a large pot and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 25 – 30 minutes.
  • Puree in a food processor until it is slightly chunky. If you want completely smooth, continue to puree. You can do this in a blender but do it in batches and only fill the blender half way. The mixture is hot and will expand. For safety, hold a kitchen towel over the lid.
  • Taste. If it needs more cinnamon or nutmeg you can add. Let cool completely and serve with nuts stirred into the mix. (if using)
  • You can store in a covered storage container in the refrigerator.
