Recipe by PennyG
Very tasty applesauce that's easy! Why buy processed when you can make it? I often make this up and freeze in small containers to use up those apples that are just past their prime. This recipe has very little sugar in it and you can always use Splenda instead if you like.

I doubled this and got 12 1/2 pint jars, which I canned with a hot-water bath method. I used apples from out own tree, which are a pie apple, so not sweet. I was looking for a low-sugar recipe because I used the applesauce to bake with, as a fat replacer, and didn't want the extra sugar in it. Turned out great. Made for Fall 2012 PAC game.
- 8 apples, peeled, cored & sliced (I use whatever is in my fridge)
- 1 cup water
- 2 -3 tablespoons sugar (to taste)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 pinch ground cloves (optional)
