    ellie_'s Note:

    This sounded like a more interesting applesauce than Mott's or the other store bought applesauce and so easy too. Recipe source: The Steamer Cookbook.

      Peel, core and cut apples into 16-20 pieces--the apple pieces should be about the same size.

      I loved this. However, my picky children informed me that they don't like applesauce chunky. Oh well, I have been enjoying it very much. Thanks for a very easy and yummy treat.

      Absolutely easy to make, this chunky apple sauce recipe will be used a lot at my house from now on! I usually keep 4-5 jars of the store-bought kind on hand & eat it plain, use it as a topping for cottage cheese or waffles, add it to any number of cranberry recipes, or just use it as a simple side for chicken or pork. Now, I can enjoy making my own! Many thanks ~ it's great!
