Applesauce (or apple sauce) is a sauce that is made from stewed and mashed apples. Sometimes, apple sauce is sweetened with sugar or high fructose corn syrup; sometimes it is pure. It can use peeled or unpeeled apples and a variety of spices or additives like cinnamon. Applesauce can be fine or coarse textured, even to including large chunks of apple. It is easily produced at home, and commercial versions are readily available in the supermarket as a common food or as a snack for children.

In the United Kingdom, apple sauce is not usually served as a dish on its own, but, as the name variant suggests, as a sauce. This usually accompanies a main course meat, and is most often paired with ham, pork, or gammon.

Applesauce is often used as food for babies, since it does not require the use of teeth. It is sometimes recommended to combat diarrhea, since it is high in dietary fiber.

The word "Applesauce" was a slang term frequently used during the 1920's, meaning "oh no!" or "darn".
