    Lennie's Note:

    Good basic applesauce. Add some red-hots (cinnamon hearts candy) to boost the flavour and the colour.

      I finally made this today, and it's fantastic! Since I had only 2 lb of apples, I halved the recipe, and for a while, I was worried that 1/4 cup water would not be enough, but all went well, and I have a jar of yummy applesauce sitting in my refigerator now! Thanks Lennie, now I have something to top my pancakes with!

      I've made a lot of applesause and this is a very good recipe! I used Granny Smith apples, as that is what I had on hand. I put all the ingredients into the pot, including sugar with a little extra to our tastes. Results were perfect! Very easy recipe. Thanks, Lennie!

      The coring of the apples took a long time. But, when the applesauce was ready, I was DELIGHTED! Absolutely lovely in taste, I felt like a kid when licking the blender jar towards the finish:) Also, this recipe brought back memories of one of my most favourite desserts known as 'Blushing apple'. I'm now all set to make all sorts of goodies with this delicious yummy applesauce!
