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.

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.
