    This is just the way we like our applesauce – chunky !!!! Thia looks really good. Thanks for sharing.

  4. This looks so much better (and I bet TASTES better) than the store-bought stuff. I don’t have kids yet, but I eat applesauce myself on occasion. I really need to go apple picking now. Thanks for the recipe, I didn’t realize it was that easy to make!

    I love applesauce but have never tried to make it on my own. This looks pretty simple and with the nice crop of apples coming I could easily get my hands on the ingredients.

    I would absolutely love to make this for my family. How many apples in 6 pounds? It sounds like a lot!! I will be pinning this b/c we eat a lot of it and I buy organic, but I’d much rather make my own. Thank you.

    I tried applesauce before and it looked NOTHING like this! I can’t wait to try this out. It looks so simple that I might even do this with the Cub Scouts. Thanks for sharing!

    My boys adore applesauce and making it at home is not that hard. I just forget to plan the time to do it! And, I adore a bit of cinnamon in mine.
