Reviews for Chunky Cinnamon Apple Sauce
"Delicious on potato pancakes and over ice cream."
"Wonderful! I used sweet apples, and left the sugar out. I also used sweeter apples to compensate for the lack of sugar. Then I used my immersion blender to blend it together and cut up the apple skin. Yum!"
"I used Gala apples and the sauce turned wonderful. My husband and I both are diabetic and it is a great snack for us. peg51"
"I would love to hear what different types of apples people have used in this recipe. I used McIntosh because they are good for applesauce and we were using tart apples for a different recipe but I am not sure it turned out as good."
"I just made this with freshly picked apples and it is outstanding! I actually liked it even better cold the next day rather than hot! Preparation was simple- although it took me way longer then 5 minutes to peel and slice 10 large apples. Worth the bit of effort! Have fall party in a few weeks and will definitely be making this for something a little different for a pot-lock."
"This easy to make applesauce has become a holiday must in our family! It makes the house smells sooo good while it's cooking!"
