    rpgaymer's Note:

    I made this for the holidays, and it was truly the best applesauce I've ever had. The apartment smelled incredible while it was cooking! I used a mixture of Gala and Fuji apples, although any apples should be fine. Courtesy of

      Bring all ingredients except the vanilla extract to a boil in a 6-qt. saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until the apples start to break down.
    2. 2
      Uncover and cook for a further 1-1 1/2 hours, or until the mixture has reduced by about a third and the sauce becomes thick and amber-colored.

      Wow this is a delicious applesauce! For me the addition of the vanilla really gave it that something special. I scaled the recipe to 1 lb of apples (used Granny Smith) and did not peel them for a more rustic texture. Loved this - thanks for sharing the recipe!

      I really liked the flavor the vanilla bean added to this dish but I felt there was a bit too much of another flavor - possibly the nutmeg. From adding nutmeg to it and then the nutmeg in the all spice.

      Truly a 5 star recipe, this is simply delicious. Not difficult to make and sure a lot better than store bought. I made a half recipe using Ambrosia apples. In turn I used this to make Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies using the spice in the applesauce for that ask for in the muffins . All sugar was replaced with Splenda. I should add that I left the spice at the original amount even though I just made half the recipe.
