This bright pink applesauce is simple enough for a weeknight supper and festive enough for special occasions. It's a favorite with my family and friends and looks fabulous at a Christmas dinner! You can substitute Splenda® for the sugar.

This was an excellent accompaniment to baked chicken! I did alter the recipe by adding a teaspoon of ginger and halving the cinnamon to suit my family's palate. I will be making this again! Read More
