"I've made this recipe twice and both times the applesauce was great! However, i found that when i used fresh apples picked from our tree, it didn't need any sugar. The second time, i used apples tha..." See moret i had frozen and needed the sugar, but used half of what was recommended. It's an easy recipe and i love it!"
"I don't like cloves and debated using them. I did and OH MY WORD was this awesome!! I used the food processor for 3/4 of this then used a fork just to break up the remaining apples so there would st..." See moreill be large chunks. We had it while it was still warm and oh my word!! Never again will I buy applesauce when I can easily make it. Thanks so much for posting this recipe!! **EDIT: I've made this numerous times now and it's great warm but even better the next day!"
"It is imporant to rememeber that apples come in various forms. Some are sweet, others tart. Some have firm flesh and others soft. Therefore, there is no exact recipe for anything involving apples. W..." See moreith that said, this is a great basis to work from. I used Cortland apples, which had a sweet taste and firm texture. I tasted the apple mixture right before I was supposed to add sugar, and it was sweet enough so I left it out. Then when it was finished cooking, I smooshed its with the back of the spoon to make it smoother, but still chunky. A number of people commented it on not getting it smooth enough. Some advice: use softer fleshed apples, add more water and cook for longer, or use a blender, as previosuly stated. Over all this was a great way to make applesauce!"
