    Doubled the recipe for company tonight. It's too bad I didn't make more. We all loved it, and wanted more. NO leftovers at all.I also did not adjust this. Definately plan on making again. Thank you for a great recipe. Made for Zaar Stars.

    I used 6 gala apples. I cooked it in the microwave. And then added cherry-raspberry-strawberry preserve with less sugar. It's very good. Thanks Sharon. Made for Zaar Star Game.

    Automatic 5 star DD (3) loved this. Also DH must've said 3 to 4 times, this is really good applesauce. Very easy and tasty. Love the flavor the ginger gives it. Definatly will be a remake. Served as a side with chicken pot pie.

    I enjoyed this recipeand plan to make it again with my own Gala apples and my own cherries preserves later in the year. It was easy to make with quality ingredients. Good flavor all around, and could be served with a variety of foods. I think it would also be good on pancakes!
