My great aunt Bessie made this oink applesauce with jello powder..I am not sure exactly how she made it but it was delicious . This recipe is as close as i remember . sweet apples include red delicious, Fuji, Gala, yellow delicious, Jonagold, Cortland, Macintosh and others. 6 pounds of whole apples should give u about 12 cups of chopped apples. I can this.
