Raw Applesauce

"Applesauce, raw & fresh! This simple recipe comes from the Honey Acres Beekeeper's Best Honey Cookbook. Although any type of apple could be used here, I prefer either the gala or fuji. And, instead of apple juice, one could substitute orange juice or pineapple juice."

  1. This is a very good way to make applesauce. I like how you can control the texture of it too. I halved the recipe easily and we enjoyed it with our dinner tonight. I used Gala apples this time but could see using a mix of gala and fuji apples too. Thanks Syd. Made for your bonus in the Healthy Choices tag game.
  2. This is a VERY, VERY TASTY applesauce! I still cant believe how fast and easy it was to put together and how incredibly nice it tasted! Very fresh, fruity and with exactly the right amount of sweetness. I think I even like it better than cooked applesauce. As NELady I too was quite tempted to put in some cinnamon since I usually do that with my applesauce, but this really didnt need any add ins. Its perfect as is. I made half the recipe and still got 3 cups of applesauce out of it. Maybe cause my apples were rather big. Anyways, thanks so much for sharing, Syd! This is a definite keeper. Made for one of my "babies" during Spring PAC 2009.
  3. This was very good and very simple to make. Next time I would add a little cinnamon (don't know why I think that apple sauce should always have cinnamon - must be a personal preference). Made for Newest 'Zaar Tag.
  4. Yum. Fresh. I used gala apples, creamed honey & apple cider as I like it cold better than apple juice. Like another reviewer noted it's nice to be able to control the texture which I like a bit chunky. Made for Special Event ~ Adopt a Veggie Tag!
  5. Fresh, healthy, fast and tasty who could ask for anything more? I made as written using gala apples; DH thought it was a bit sweet for his tasty so next time I will cut the honey just a tiny bit. Yes there will be a next time because this is a great recipe to have on hand for apple season, thanks for the post.
