I used my crock pot and fresh apples from my farm. I used 3 pounds apples, cored, peeled and cut into chunks, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and a few sprinkles of cinnimon. Cook on high for 4 -5 hours, just perfect!!! Read More

Not happy with it as written. Found that brown sugar instead of white and an addition of cinnamon make it more palatable. Also drained my apples. Read More

Excellent! I only used a dash or two of sugar and added a couple of 4" cinnamon sticks to the simmering apples (mmmm!). I didn't process the apples - I mashed them up with my potato masher for a great chunky applesauce! Read More

This is very tasty applesauce! I agree with the other posts about cutting back on the sugar. As it does depend on the apples your using. I would suggest that when you add the sugar start with 1/4 c. add a little bit more sugar as you go along tasting with each addition of more sugar. You can pretty much judge at that point how sweet you want it. I also added cinnamon. I also strained the apples before processing. There's nothing like fresh applesauce thanks for this recipe!

YUMMY! This was a big hit with my whole family. My kids are fighting right now over who gets to eat the last bit of applesauce. I drained the water once the apples were tender. Didn't need to put them in the blender just stirred with a whisk and the consistency came out perfect. I added about 3 Tbs. brown sugar 1 tsp. vanilla a pinch of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. Delicious!!!! Read More

This was the best applesauce I've ever tasted. I would suggest cutting back on the sugar though. It may have been that I had very sweet apples. SUGGESTION: Save the apple broth after cooking the apples. You can make cidar or something with it. I used it in place of plain water for steamed rice a couple of days later. AWESOME! Read More

Great and so easy to make! It does take a bit longer than the recipe says however. Next time I'm going to make it in the slow cooker. It was a bit too watery so don't use too much water! Try it with cinnamon! Read More

This recipe is wonderful. I read the reviews first & cut back on the sugar. I'm using sweet eating apples so I added maybe 4 tablespoons of sugar & a little cinnamon. I highly recomend it. Read More
