I made this with a mix of pears and different kinds of apples. It was great! The different flavors blended well together. Thanks for the recipe.

I like apple butter and take the applesauce this one step further by baking it in a 375 degree oven (stirring it every 30 minutes) until it is the consistency I'm looking for. Depending on the amount of liquid in the applesauce, this can take up to several hours.

I made this for our toddler son last weekend, and he absolutely gobbled it up! I enjoyed it with some cottage cheese for a wonderful snack. Thank you for this great recipe...it's delicious, flavorful and so easy!

Applesauce season started two weeks ago for us. Many (MANY!) of our neighborhood grandparents have an apple tree or two in their yards. The Boy and I get a bucket of apples every weekend and get to it. I cut, Gramma cooks, The Boy mashes. Everyone is happy and the house smells good. Because we have such a variety of apples, the batches are different every time ... and always good.

The crockpot is also a good way to make applesauce. Keep the heat on low and the liquid to a minimum--cooked long enough it becomes apple butter. I keep the peels on (organic) and use no sugar. Nothing better than applesauce this time of year when the apples are in season!!!
