There is nothing better than homemade applesauce with apples from your own apple trees, and it is so easy to do! If you want chunky applesauce, use a potato masher to mash the cooked apples. If you prefer smooth apple sauce, run the cooked apples through a food mill.

This recipe was simple and delicious! I love it when I see people using jarred applesauce and i think "Ha! I bet this applesauce is 10x better!" Thanks for making this recipe scrumptious and plain ol' simple!
