      When I was little, my mom would buy bushels of apples and spend a day making applesauce. It looked like a big production and she never showed me how to do it. :( Sadly, I've been spoiled on her applesauce and can't eat any other kind. Storebought just never cut it for me. I think it's the added cinnamon that I don't like. Anyway, it's been about 20 years since I've had applesauce, and I just had to try making it myself. I've been craving applesauce on graham crackers like I had when I was a kid! This recipe looked pretty simple - a good place to start. I would recommend cutting the apples into smaller pieces, perhaps even dicing them. It took over a half hour for the apples to soften cut in just quarters. Also, 1/3 cup of water is not enough to keep the apples from turning brown, so until I was done peeling the apples, I kept the cut apples in a bowl of cool water. I placed a small plate on top to keep the apples underwater. That worked fairly well. Based on the recipe, I thought the apples would just soften up and magically turn into sauce all on their own! It didn't. I used a potato masher to get the right consistency. I added some more water too (because mom's was kinda watery). I think the apples I used were red delicious. The taste was very good - pretty close to my mom's! It was a little too thick for my tastes, but I can't stand chunks - my weird problem. I don't know how my mom got hers so smooth. She didn't have a food processor so I'm baffled. Still, it tastes great and I will be using this recipe again. My fiance loves it too. Thanks!

      This is such a wonderful, simple recipe! Lilkittykt's description sums it up perfectly, "yum". I cut 4 huge Fuji apples into chunks, and cooked them for 25 minutes. Since I don't like chunky applesauce, I used my potato masher to smash them. The consistency still isn't as smooth as bought applesauce, but the taste is far superior. I'd like to try it with 1/2 brown sugar next time to see how it tastes. I will definitely be using this recipe again and again!!
