    Made for Kid Friendly Tag and my kids did like it. I used 2 lbs gala and 2 lbs red pears (skin on). Also used 1/2 cup frozen (thawed) strawberries instead of the preserves (that really reduces the sugar). I like the little bit of crunch the pears give applesauce, but I puree it with my hand blender until smooth. It made a full to the top quart canning jar. With the strawberries and red pear skins, no need for the nasty food coloring! :)
