"This spicy applesauce requires no added sugar because the apples and spices are sweet enough on their own. The smell of the apples cooking with the spices makes the entire house smell like apple cider!"

apples - peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
1 1/2 tablespoons
I used 12 Ginger Goldens,and 3 Honey Crisp along with 1 1/2 cups of Apple Cider. Slow cooked on low for 7 hrs before blending it in our food processor then canned them in 4 pint jars. No Sugar Added!!!!
Ok. The point of this recipe is its sugar free. So those who added sugar have created a different applesauce and really shouldn't have commented here. I am looking for a sugar free applesauce and this recipe exactly as it is, is perfect. Even the water is not needed.
Try using a variety of apples for a wonderful cider blend. We've used Gala, Jonagold, Fuji, and Granny Smiths at different times and they all cook up beautifully!
This applesauce truly is wonderful without adding any sugar! The spices and flavors from the apples themselves give it a rich, sweet blend.
I added a little brown sugar and about a half cup of water to this recipe, and it turned out fabulous. Cooked on Low for about 5 hours. The whole house smelled heavenly.
Just made this recipe today. It turned out great! I had a ton of apples that were given to me and no way to eat them fast enough. This recipe turned out delicious, and did not need any sugar. I only cooked it for 3.5 hours (it was definitely done by then), and I added 1/2 cup water at the start so it wouldn't stick (which it was doing).
I'm definitely making this again! It's very easy!
I tossed the apples with a tablespoon of lemon juice (to prevent browning and to give it a little tartness) and added a quarter cup brown sugar to this recipe. I also used a combination of apples and even threw in a couple overripe pears! Very nice. GREAT for using in baking.
This applesauce came out just wonderful, very tangy/sweet and flavorful. I used a bunch of different varieties of wild apples picked from the woods and by the roadside around my house. I especially loved that it was a bit chunky when done. While slicing the apples, I tossed them in a few drops of lemon juice to prevent them from browning. I also threw in a couple teaspoons of brown sugar for a bit more sweetness. Thanks for offering this recipe!
Fantastic recipe. Made just as directed. I did add a touch of Cran/Apple juice to keep it from sticking. I used an immersion blender to whip it up. I'm now going to freeze it in small portions for my mother-in-law to enjoy over the winter. And I agree with another reviewer-if you add sugar you're making a completely different recipe. My M-I-L is diabetic and I didn't want to add any sugar. Thank you for sharing.
