soooo easy! I used ginger instead of mace and gala apples. I forgot about it simmering on the stove - whoops! but no problem, it didn't burn!

Wonderful twist on traditional applesauce. Great way to use up pears and apples -- freeze and use instead of regular applesauce.

Very easy & served as a side with spicy pork loin. I was out of mace, so used 1/8 tsp. pumpkin pie spice. Yummy!

Very good applesauce! I used three barlett pears and four small gala apples. I cut my pieces pretty small, so it took me a lot longer than 5 minutes to prep this. I didn't have any apple juice concentrate, so I just added a little extra water and some sugar twin brown sugar. I left out the mace and pureed this smooth, which gave me about 4 cups of applesauce. I liked it a lot better after it had been refrigerated for awhile. Great spin on traditional applesauce!

We would give this 10 stars if we could! Loved it! Had some overripe pears and banged up apples to use and this recipe was a quick and easy choice. Healthy, too. Apple juice concentrate works very well as a sweetener, and I much prefer it to sugar. The kids asked that I pack some in their lunches which is a big thumbs up! Left out the mace and pureed smooth. I used to make my boys' baby food and would suggest for a small baby omitting the lemon juice and spices. Thanks for sharing your recipe! I'll be making this again!

Very good! We had it with vanilla ice-cream when it was still luke-warm, highly recommended! We have also enjoyed it with yoghurt and we are planning to have it with some cranberry ice-cream. Very versatile. Good on its own too. I was pleased with the fact that no extra sugar or other sweetening is added, just the sweetness of the fruit itself. At first I thought that the anount of spices would be insufficient but it was just right. Very easy to make and I am so pleased to have found this recipe. Thanks for posting.

Soooo nice! I did cut down slightly on all 3 spices, but that's about it! I also doubled the recipe, then mashed half of the total, leaving the rest in chunks! Great with everything from cottage cheese to pound cake & ice cream, not to mention as an addition to cranberry sauce to cut down on the tartness! Thanks for the recipe!

Preparing food for your baby is easy and healthier than purchasing bottled baby foods. I doubled this recipe and froze the rest. Lovely over pancakes for my toddler.
