Homemade Applesauce

Looking for the BEST homemade applesauce? My recipe is a MUST!

Well I’ll be honest and say I think the main thing that makes this the best applesauce recipe is the type of apples I use – AMBROSIA apples.  I love to use Ambrosia apples because they have such a nice natural sweetness, there is absolutely no need to add any additional sugar.  This applesauce can be made plain or with the addition of cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla – the best combination! Give it a try either way and let me know how it turns out for you.
