    Rachel Savage's Note:

    My late father only knew how to cook two dishes and this was one. The type of apples you use will determine how mushy your apple sauce turns out. Cooking apples will turn into the texture of commercial applesauce while others will keep their shape even after the cooking. Either way it's delicious. The recipe can easily be doubled (or tripled...or quadrupled) to serve a crowd.

      I absolutely love it! This is so convenient for me. I love this recipe because I buy organic apples which have a tendency to go bad quicker. This allows me to make good use of them before they go to waste. I bought those tiny gladlock bowls and now the applesauce is part of my son's school lunch. This is a perfect fit because I'd rather spend money on apples every other week than buying applesauce every few days when it runs out. I don't add any sugar and add a few dashes of cinnamon! Perfect! My son loves it and I love it. I always make about 8-10 apples in a cup of water. When it cools down I put it in a big Gladlock bowl and seal it. I am thinking about getting into jarring and making an armyload of this applesauce. God bless and thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

      Great applesauce. I did not add the sugar (diet restrictions) and it was still great!

      Great applesauce! Went well with Herbed Pork Roast (#85382). Pretty quick and easy to make. I even used some apples that were in my fridge for an embarassing amount of time, so this is a good use of apples that may be a bit past their prime!
