"What a great way to use leftover apples. I was just trying to be economical and it turned out to be a real hit! I used sweet yellow apples that had been in the basemen for a while, but nobody seemed to mind! They asked for more! So I will use this regularly. I want to try them with the tart apples. I can't wait!"

"I made this dish tonight and it was a hands down winner. I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious. Next time, I will make more although there were two nice sized servings. It was sooooo good. My husband loved it. I highly recommend this recipe."

"My fiance is a student, and I'm working to save up for school. With our busy lifestyle and terribly low budget, we often end up making less healthy choices, opting for a quick fix instead. Sometimes, this leads to produce that lays around a bit too long. We had 6 apples that needed to be used up within the next few days or they'd go to waste. Last night, I tried this recipe with 2 of them, and we were relaxed, comforted and extremely pleased with the way it turned out. We did have one immediate criticism: too much sugar. I doubled the recipe this morning, but used only 3.5 Tblsp sugar. It was even better than the first go-around, and now we know it's healthier! Next time I make a single batch, I'll use 1.5 Tblsp sugar."

"This is the only way I make applesauce only I make a much larger batch. I fill a 9 x 13 baking dish with apples and add the same ingredients on a larger scale. Cover with foil and bake. Mash with a fork. Best applesauce ever!"

"This was a hit at our family gathering. I even made a second batch later that afternoon because everyone asked for more."
