Didn't have enough apples but still made the whole amount of sauce, just in case. Added 2 TABLESPOONS of cinnamon (our fam LOVES cinnamon) and put in 4 cups white sugar, 1/2 cup brown for that deep taste and color. Added 1/2 tsp (instead of 1/4) nutmeg and 1/2 tsp cloves. I did add the cornstarch with two cups of the water and mixed it, then added it to the sugar/water (remaining 6 cups) mixture. I used the lemon juice on the slices as I cut them and then used that water as the 2 cups mixed with the cornstarch. Other than that, left the recipe as it stands. Put up two quarts of extra sauce (remember, I had a mixed match basket of apples that someone gave me, that were going bad). We had a basket of bananas that were going bad too. We cut up some good apples and bananas, added some pecans and mixed it with the sauce. YUMMO! We're putting it on French Toast tomorrow. I made "Apple scrap jelly" out of the peels and cores. Thanks for the great recipe! I plan to use this as an apple crisp when family comes in this summer.
