Easy Applesauce

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

Use fresh cooking apples for this for best results. Some examples are Cameo, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Jonathans, Gravensteins, etc. I like to use a mixture for more balanced flavor. You can add sweeteners and spices of your choice to this, but taste it first. The cider does add some sweetness and some apple varieties are more naturally sweet. TNT

Great, masha Allah. Actually preferred it warm. The best apple sauce I have made yet. I used a mixture of mostly Macintosh and some Spartan apples (I think). I am eating it warm, chunky (how I like it) out of the pot, no sweetener needed! I also cooked this for less time than stated leaving the pot covered when they were just about cooked taking it off the burner. I will keep this recipe on hand!!
