Great simple recipe. I didn't change a thing. My first time making homemade applesauce and it tastes so much better than the store bought stuff. I used Honeycrisp apples which imparted just enough tang.

This was great, though I left out the sugar and salt (apples are plenty sweet). I froze in 1 cup bags, great for having on hand for baking. Thanks for posting!
