  • “This is also how I make my apple sauce. Sometimes I add cinnamon to the top, but that is the only difference. Great basic recipe!”

  • “This is exactly how I make my apple sauce. I rarely find it necessary to add sugar as the natural sweetness of the apples is more than enough for me, but if you normally buy sweetened apple sauce you may want to add a bit.”
