      Pretty good stuff. I think this is the first time I've ever made apple sauce from scratch. I made it exactly as written, opting for cognac over brandy. (I couldn't really taste the effect of the cognac, though.) It made a fairly large amount, but I enjoyed the last bowlful days later. Like another reviewer, however, my apples weren't too mashable with a hand masher, and I did microwave the recipe for 10 minutes on the highest power level. After lots of effort, my results were still pretty chunky, and I really prefer a much smoother apple sauce. Despite my texture preference, the taste was still great. I just bought an immersion (aka stick or hand) blender, so I'll probably try this recipe again and use that tool.

      Excellent and fun to make, I probably needed to microwave my apples a little longer, I couldn't really mash them I ended up putting them in the blender.

      This is a great applesauce. I used only Cortland apples. I used brandy and omitted the honey. Thanks Velouria :) Made for Alphabet tag game
