I am really trying to watch my sugar intake, but find myself craving something sweet, so threw this together in a pot and it did the job. I really think they are sweet enough without adding any sugar. Sometimes if I feel like being bad, I will put them on pancakes (pancakes not so good for you ;-( ) I leave the skins on the apples as I like them a bit rustic and not totally resembling baby food. I make a bigger batch, keep it in the fridge and heat up a bowl when I want something sweet and warm. Almost like apple pie!
