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!!
Very easy to make & it has a very nice taste, what with the apple cider. I cooked mine for a little over 20 minutes & was happy enough with that after I cooled them down a bit & partially mashed the apples, leaving a somewhat chunky applesauce! We really enjoy homemade applesauce, & thank you, Sue, for sharing your recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Comfort Cafe under my theme, "Sassy Cider Sauces"]
We love apple sauce.Taste good and shall freeze the rest in 1 cup portions as it made a lot with my left over apples.
Absolutely wonderful recipe. I followed the recipe to a T and got perfect applesauce. I did not need sweetner - and only sprinkled a bit of cinnamon on some for myself (personal preference). The family loved it and I sent this to my SIL who was just looking for a good recipe to make some applesauce for Christmas dinner. PERFECT! ;) **Made for Beverage Tag 2007*
What an easy and refreshing applesauce. I didn't have to cook it longer than 15 minutes, after which I just covered with a lid, removed from heat and let cool for about 1/2 hr. I used half Granny Smith and half Cameo apples. Three of each and they were a good size apple. I also just mashed them with a potato masher and it worked out great. I got a little over 2 quarts and the texture looks almost identical to your picture!
Although easy to make, it's very difficult to stop eating! This is great. thanks for sharing.
