    Sydney Mike's Note:

    Making a simple, chunky applesauce, this recipe comes from the 2005 cookbook, Get Saucy. I prefer using either Mcintosh or Pippin apples for this sauce, & making a double batch allows for freezing some for later! [NOTE: in Oct 2009 I did try this using Fuji apples & it turned out VERY WELL, & I've now changed to using the apple cider!]

      Who knew homemade applesauce could be this quick and easy?!? I scaled this back to 2 servings, using 2 good-sized golden delicious apples, and thought it was perfect - just sweet enough and just chunky enough. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

      Easy & tasty. Nice way to use up frozen apples. I kick myself cause I forgot to add the lemon juice. I had already froze the sauce in cubes so it was too late to fix it. I have another bag of frozen apples so I'll make sure I add the lemon juice next time.
