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!

I've made this applesauce several times and it is easy and delicious! I halved the recipe for 2. Use brown sugar insead of white, Granny Smith Apples and add extra Penzy's Vietnamese cinnamon. I like it chunky, so I don't over cook or over stir it. Add a couple red hot candies for a Christmas look. It's great served with pork :)))

Delicious and super easy! I like to make it in the morning to have with breakfast! I find that adding a touch of salt enhances the flavor.

Was good, and easy! Next time I will use maybe 1/4 of the sugar suggested though, if any.

I made this earlier this morning. I used 3 golden delicious and 1 courtland apple, and added only a pinch of brown sugar and a dash of cinnamon. It is so good, and a great alternative to buying Mott's applesauce for my 7 month old daughter.

So simple, yet tastey! I cut way back on the sugar, and just sprinkled to taste, but this truely was a perfect recipe on what to do with too many overly ripe apples! thanks

Awesome recipe for sure! I used a mixture of Lobo and Spartan apples for a variety in both flavor and texture. I also used apple pie spice from epicure to season it. My children and husband both LOVED it as do I. Thanks for sharing!
