Really quick & easy to make. Much better than the premade stuff sold in the stores! I modified the recipe by using 3 large apples. Didn't bother to peel or shred them--just chopped and cored them. (Came from my apple tree, so I didn't have to worry about peeling. Extra fiber!) Adjusted the amount of water and sugar to taste, but used the full amount of cinnamon called for. After the apples had cooked, I pureed the mixture in the food processor. **Used this applesauce in "Baked Oatmeal," which is also on this site. Used applesauce instead of the oil called for.**

Kind of a pain in the butt to shred the apples, and wayyyyy too much cinnamon. I will never make it this way again.

This is really easy to make. I used macintosh apples, and cut them into chunks instead of shredding them. I scaled the recipe to make 8 servings, and used only 1 tsp. of cinnamon, instead of a tablespoon of cinnamon. I agree with the other reviewers that this recipe calls for way to much cinnamon. I served this with vanilla ice-cream, and the tart apples with the sweet ice-cream was heaven! Kind of like apple pie without the crust. Great recipe!

Wonderful. Followed suggestions of previous reviews. I omitted the sugar and added a dash of nutmeg.

Soooooo quick and easy! I had always thought applesauce was harder to make fo some reason, but this recipe makes me never want to buy applesauce again! Only thing I did different was to eliminate the sugar; next time I think I will cut down the water too, as mine was a tad too watery.

This is a wonderful basic recipe: I tripled the batch, didn't use as much cinnamon as called for, and probably only a tablespoon total of brown sugar. I think the amount of sugar needed depends on the sweetness of the apples, and preference, of course. I also chopped the apples instead of grating them...I liked the texture like that. I will definitely make this again!

I've always used regular white sugar when making applesauce in the this was a pleasant surprise in using the brown sugar. I, too, would decrease the amount of cinnamon in the future ---- but overall this was a very easy and tasty recipe.

This has got to be the best tasting apple sauce ever!!! My kids tell me that it tastes just like an apple pie only without the crust!
