    This is not only the best applesauce I've ever made - it's also the best applesauce I've ever eaten! Wonderful recipe, and so easy. One word of caution though, I used my apple peeler/slicer/corer to prepare the apples and the slices come out thin. The applesauce was fully cooked and getting ready to burn after 1 hour, 45 minutes. If you use one of these gadgets (mine is from Pampered Chef), watch the cooking time.

    I must have applesauce with our New Year day pork and sauerkraut dinner and couldn’t find no added or low sugar applesauce for a diabetic family member in the store this year. I decided to make my own using this recipe with an equal combination of Granny Smith, Macintosh and Fuji apples. Rather than brown sugar, I used half the amount of Splenda Brown Sugar Blend. Loved the texture of the applesauce but it was a little too sweet for my taste and the cinnnamon stronger than we prefer. A granddaughter asked me to make this applesauce so that she can take some back to her college dorm so today I made a triple batch in my large InstaPot. This time I used half Macintosh and half Fuji apples, cut back a little on the Brown Sugar Blend and cut the amount of cinnamon by a third. Perfect for us! Granddaughter’s will be put up in small containers for her dorm refrigerator/freezer and ours will be frozen in pint portions so that we can enjoy it over the next few weeks.

    Funny, the only way I can think to describe this applesauce is rich...not normally how I would EVER describe applesauce, but there it is! I used half Granny Smiths and half Cortland apples. I also could not resist adding dried cherries to this as my DH is into the flavored applesauces. It took less than the 3 hours to cook and I also "whirled" mine in the blender for the smoother texture my family loves. My favorite kind of cooking here...minimal ingredients, minimal effort...maximum taste!

    Excellent applesauce! I used Jonathan apples instead of Granny Smith because that's what I picked at the orchard. After cooking them in the crockpot, I put the mixture into my blender until it was the consistency I wanted. My kids loved this and had it for breakfast this morning! Thanks!

    ... if you KEEP cooking this for like 24hrs.. it turns into apple butter.

    I wasn't that enthused with this dish till I saw the suggestion to pour over some vanilla ice cream, that sounds awesome.


<p><strong><span style=color: #ff0000;>Come and visit me on my blog:&nbsp; </span></strong></p> <p><a href=><strong><span style=color: #ff0000;></span></strong></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>October 2011: It's been 10 years since I came into Zaar one day at the recommendation of someone on another website. If you ask my husband (or my coworkers), I haven't logged out since! <br /><br /><a href=><br /><img src=;15;0/st/20011021/e/I Joined Zaar%21/dt/6/k/f656/event.png border=0 alt= /></a> <br /><br />So what's happened in the ten years since I became addicted to Zaar? Well, I've been happily married, happily divorced, and happily married once again. (Wanna see wedding pictures? Click <a href=>here</a>.) <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />Originally from the Bronx, I've been living in Israel since 1983. I'm married to a brilliant man with the most yummy British accent (this is the part where he rolls his eyes and says, Yeah, yeah, yeah). Let's call him Sushiman, even though he hates that name. <a href=>Chia</a> gave him that nickname when I was trying to create a dinner to show off my culinary talents. I posted here on Zaar with questions about the menu and since sushi was the main focus of the meal, he became Sushiman. That dinner was just the first of what I hope will become a lifetime of meals together. <br /><br />This is a picture of us taken in September 2005 in Kew Gardens in London. It my favorite picture of the two of us. <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting /></a> <br /><br />This comes in as a close second, taken March 2009: <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />I have 4 of the most gorgeous daughters in the known universe (tfu, tfu, tfu, that's me spitting three times to ward off the Evil Eye). Sushiman has 4 kids of his own, so together that makes us a family of ten, together with my dog and my step-dog (sadly, since I first wrote this my step-dog, Honey, crossed the Rainbow Bridge). We're the Brady Bunch on speed. Not all eight live with us, but everyone is in and out all of the time, so we're thinking about replacing our front door with one of those revolving thingies.</p> <p>If you need help figuring out the whole complicated mess, you can check out <a title=Miriyummy -- A Guide to the Perplexed href= target=_blank>Miriyummy, A Guide to the Perplexed</a>.</p> <p>Here are my four beauties -- from left to right: Adiya, Sara, Nomi and Tehila <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />On March 18, 2009, my oldest, Sara, got married to Ariel. The wedding was a clash of cultures and traditions, and we had a blast! <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />Over 500 people attended our little party... <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />... and Ariel was welcomed into our family in style! <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />If you want to see the photo album from Sara and Ariel's wedding, just go <a href=;vhost=family&amp;action=refreshPhotos&amp;albumID=571020179&amp;security=JBDlvf>here</a>. <br /><br />We're just one big happy family, most of the time, really! <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />Here on Recipezaar I am the host of the <a href=>Kosher &amp; Jewish Cooking forum</a>.
