Nothing like homemade applesauce. How eashy is that? Great, I used ginger gold apples. It will be my staple!
Very nice applesauce. I bought an 8# bag of red delicious apples on sale yesterday, and used 6 of them to make half a recipe. I left it a little chunky because that's the way we like it. The cider that I had in the fridge was "spiced cider," so I cut back a little bit on the cinnamon. Very tasty applesauce with just the right amount of sweetness.
Forgot to note in my previous review that I used hard cider (it isn't terribly alcoholic) instead of regular cider. The flavor was wonderful. This is my new, permanent, applesauce recipe.
I made this in my small crockpot--just cooked it on a low temperature all day. After it had cooked down, I cooled it a bit and ran it through the blender for a fine consistancy. Perfect applesauce.
Normally I don't change recipes on here since I like to make them as written and THEN tweak if necessary...BUT I didn't have apple cider. So other than using apple juice in place of cider and leaving out the sugar entirely, I made this as written using Gala apples. FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC applesauce. I also made a plain batch w/o cinnamon but with the apple/lemon juice and it's just as good. Great recipe - you won't be disappointed.
Excellent recipe - just tart enough and sweet enough and perfect amount of cinnamon. I used Melrose apples, and I also opted for the slow cooker (2 1/2 hours on high). It made my house smell great all day!
Delicious! This is a lovely applesauce and easy recipe. I left the skins on the apples and used an immersion blender to blend it at the end so that the consistency was right. I also cut the sugar by using a couple of tablespoons of honey, and just a tablespoon of brown sugar. Even with this change it was still nice and sweet. Next time no need for the brown sugar at all. Good sauce!
Excellent, easy to make. I used a mix of Gala and Macintosh, just happened to be what I had on hand. Did increase both the cinnamon and sugar to suit my own sweet tooth. All of my family loved it!
