Can this be canned?
No excuses not to make fresh. This recipe is outstanding. It literally is done in no time at all. I used Gala Apples and I added about a 1/2 cup of apple juice to the pot. I also left out the vanilla. The smell of the simmering apples fills the room with a most wonderful smell . Cooked it low and very slowly. It was so good. A must make in my opinion. TOH VFE
YUMMY, CHUNKY APPLESAUCE, I ADD CREAM CHEESE, SMALL AMOUNT. I MADE TARTS, OUT OF THIS RECIPE. I COOK THESE IN MY NEW, POWER AIR FRYER OVEN. COOK ON !!
Love homemade applesauce.
I haven't used store-bought applesauce in years. We have a Gravenstein tree in our front yard; when that's not in season, I use Honey Crisp or Granny Smith--we like it fairly tart. Love the vanilla, and I also throw in a pat of butter and a bit of apple juice (makes it smoother) and a teaspoon or so of apple brandy or apple schnapps. But I've never tried brown sugar, only white sugar, and will definitely do so next batch.
Great flavor! It was quite sweet so I may cut back on either the vanilla or use less brown sugar.
This was delicious and made my home smell wonderful while it was cooking! I thought the vanilla was a little overwhelming so I would probably cut this down or leave it out next time.
So good and easy. Easily the best homemade applesauce I've made.
Love, love, love the addition of the vanilla. I would never have thought about putting vanilla in applesauce, but it just adds that something special.
Best applesauce ever! I agree with the previous reviewer that the vanilla gives it an extra special flavor. My apples were sweet, so I added lemon juice and cut back on the sugar. Yum!
