"I used Cortland apples, love these for pies but never used for applesauce. I added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to mixture. The applesauce was quick and easy and tasted wonderful. I used 7 apples so plenty leftover since just my husband and me."

"This deserves it's name "easy!" I have made this several times and there is no doubt that this is far more delicious than the store-bought kind. I did have to cook the apples several minutes longer than the recipe calls for. The first time I made it, I used vanilla extract and felt that it added a very odd flavor. Perhaps the almond would be better, but I actually think it's great without anything else added. I'm sure a bit of cinnamon would be very good, though. This is so fast and easy to make that I won't be buying much applesauce at the grocery store anymore."

"Delish! My apples had to cook a bit longer than 20 minutes to get to the right consistency. Very good. I added a sprinkle of cinnamon at the end but not much needed as the vanilla added an interesting flavor."
