This smells great while it's cooking and is really nice served warm with roast pork. I found this recipe in the Sunset Crockery Cookbook.

    Fantastic! The cinnamon stick was perfect. It was pretty sweet so if you prefer a less sweet applesauce than I would certainly reduce the sugar to 1/2 of what is called for, but my husband and I personally liked the sweetness so I cook the recipe as it is. I am making it for the second time in the last few days!

    Yum! Made this recipe twice in one weekend, that's how much we liked it! Followed as stated, except used 1/8 cup sugar. But I used honeycrisp apples, which are probably sweeter anyway.

    The taste of this dish is still in my mouth as I type this. Sooooooo good! I used organic sucanat for my sugar. Its not as sweet as white or brown...to me anyway. I diced the apples, used the juice of half a lemon and half a orange. I also added a pinch of salt. Took my potaato masher to it before removing from crock pot. Boy, I don't think I will have any left over to freeze...I'm going back for some more just as soon as I finish this!

    VERY VERY cinnamon-y. We like our applesauce with cinnamon, but this was a bit too much for my husband, who would not eat it. I felt it tasted more like a pie filling or cobbler or apple butter. It was a little strong to eat by itself (and I even lowered the sugar to 1/4 cup). Still tasty, just a little too much so.

    Turned out excellent. Didn't last long. I did double the recipe. Will make again, but will probably cut back on the sugar a bit. It was a bit sweet for me, but of course the kids liked it.
