i had not thought of adding peanut butter, so will try this fall. I wash my apples good, cut in quarters and take core out then cut once more and cook till they are soft. Then put through ricer. Now I have applesauce and ready to add sugar. I don't add spices till an hour before ready. This saves lots of standing time for me. Nonie
