We eat a lot of cooked apples and I think this may be the best that I've ever had. The citrus zest and juice are what make this so awesome. In the future I will cut back a little on the white sugar. But that's just a taste preference as I typically don't like really sweet applesauce. Thanks Annie for a great new side dish. Read More

Wonderful! This is an amazing chunky applesauce! I plan on serving it warm topped with vanilla ice cream for a dessert and also using it for breakfast topped with granola. I used 3/4 cup raw cane sugar instead of white sugar and also added the 2 Tablespoons of brown sugar. I used Paula Red apples that I had on hand for the applesauce. My husband loves it! I'll be making this applesauce often. Thank you for the recipe! Read More

made it as written and very good with more flavor than traditional apple sauce. I have made it two more times using rum (2 oz.) or absinth (2oz). Good both ways. Read More
