    Why have I been buying applesauce my whole life? I didn't have tart apples so I used honeycrisps - wonderful!!!

    My family absolutely loved this applesauce! I chose to omit the sugar and it tasted just as great using a mixture of transparents, galas, and even a couple granny smiths. This was such an easy recipe I will be making more next apple season!

    I really liked this recipe! The flavor was excellent. This was my first time making my own homemade applesauce. It was ridiculously easy. And the flavor of this recipe can't be beat!
