    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    This homemade applesauce has a delicious, clear apple taste accented with a little nutmeg, a nip of lemon, and bit of cranberry juice . Use some of the apple peelings to make the applesauce nice and thick (and remember to dig them out before serving).

      This is a wonderful applesauce. The only change I made was to used cinnamon instead of nutmeg. Thanks EdsGirlAngie :) Made for I Recommend tag game

      I just thought this was great applesauce. I did add more sugar - about 3 heaping tablespoons - because the cranberry can be somewhat tart. With the added sugar, I thought it was perfect. My kids like to sprinkle cinnamon over the top. I like my applesauce smooth, so I mashed it very well. I recommend keeping the peelings , used in the cooking of the applesauce, long and as intact as possible. These would be easier to fish out of the finished product. I will definitely be making this again. My kids loved it. Thanks! ~Made for Think Pink 2008 - breast cancer awareness month~

      Divine and so nice and apple-ly. The cranberry (I used a combination of raspberry/cranberry) juice used here really brings the apple combination to the top. I did add extra sugar (to a full 1/4 cup) and reduced the nutmeg because I didn't want the nutmeg to overpower the sauce itself. I left the apples somewhat chunky, and put a couple of the red/skins from the apples in to give it a real rich pink color. Next time I might add a bit of cinnamon and a couple drops of vanilla. Wonderful recipe! Made for *Think Pink* (Breast Cancer Awareness Month) Fall 2008
