"This spiced applesauce is an amazing way to start the morning. I love it by itself or as a healthy topping for oatmeal, yogurt, or cottage cheese. I try to eat gluten- and sugar-free food as much as possible while keeping it delicious and full of flavor. This simple recipe is an easy choice! Agave nectar is a fantastic natural sweetener that is low carb and low glycemic index. It is about twice as sweet as sugar so use it in moderation. Use twice the amount of sugar if you are going to substitute. I like my apples tart, so feel free to sweeten to taste."

apples - peeled, cored, and diced
ground black pepper
Pretty good. I needed more water than called for as it dried out. If you aren't used to the taste of agave, I recommend you add a little at a time, to taste. I served this over pork chops.
I used Granny Smith apples in this recipe, honey instead of agave nectar (I didn't have agave nectar on hand) and I omitted the pepper. I actually cooked this in my slow cooker all morning, then cooled it and ran the apples and liquid through my food processor. This turned out very well.
I just made this and I think it's great! I used an apple corer/slicer after peeling the apples (no dicing) they will cook down. I did need a little extra water but that is easily adjustable and could been necessary due to the a unusual combination of apple varieties (Fuji and Red Delicious) I used. I needed to use them because the kids didn't eat them up quick enough! I wanted a recipe that would allow me to sweeten up the applesauce some, but without sugar. This turned out very good, exceeding my expectations!
This was my first time making applesauce, and I found it very easy and yummy. The hardest part was dicing all the apples. I didn't have agave so I used honey. I did a half recipe and got plenty of applesauce. I ended with is a bit chunky, but that's completely because of the minimal effort I put into mashing it at the end.
