"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 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."

"Made it for Thanksgiving with requests for a repeat for Christmas dinner! Tasted great hot and cold. I did use 1/2 cup sugar, Fuji apples, and added a 1/2 teas vanilla. So easy to make."

"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."
