"A friend gave me this delicious recipe 20 years ago, and I've made applesauce this way ever since," informs Margery Bryan of Royal City, Washington. "We grow a lot of apples in this area and have fun putting this crop to good use."


  • 8 cups sliced peeled tart apples
  • 1/2 to 1 can (12 ounces) diet white soda
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, cook apples, soda and cinnamon until apples are tender, about 45 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
