Spicy Applesauce

We have an apple-picking party every year. It's a bushel of fun, and I always look forward to cooking a batch of this easy applesauce seasoned with cinnamon, cloves and allspice. —Marian Platt, Sequim, Washington

    I do mine like this on a smaller scale. I don't use apple juice though, I use water. Never have measured anything, doesn't take much water, and I taste as I My mom would sometimes add part of a bag of red hots, instead of any spices. It's delicious that way too!
