This came out perfect! Because I like a more tart applesauce I used lemon zest instead of lemon peel & left it in the final product. I used 6 large Granny Smiths because I love their balance of tart & sweet. I actually didn’t use any additional sugar outside of the premixed McCormick’s cinnamon sugar (pictured). I think that if I added any additional brown or white sugar it would have destroyed the applesauce by making it entirely too sweet (& it probably would have ended up in the trash). I never thought about eating hot applesauce until I tasted it while making it & I was today years old when I could finally understand where the “pork chop & applesauce” eaters were coming from. If I hadn’t recently started abstaining from pork I would have certainly thrown a pork chop on the stove to try with it. I would definitely make this again & would recommend that anyone preparing this wait until the very end to add any sugar.

Great recipe, however, I would leave the sugar out completely until you have taste-tested your boiled down apples. I used Gala apples, and did not taste it first, and ended up with OMG too-sweet apple sauce! oops. So, I like the addition of lemon rind for flavour and to counteract some sugars, but I opted to grate the exterior of the lemon instead, this way the lemon zest just disappears into the apple sauce. If you have less-sweet apples, you may not want any lemon at all. The cinnamon stick is a great idea for just a hint of flavour! Maybe add other festive spices depending on the time of year. I will try some different fruit combined with apples next time, but I will be watching the natural sugar levels to make sure they don't go thru the roof! I'll try pairing a sweet apple with a sour cherry or cranberry, then I'll taste-test for sweetness!! Thanks for sharing your family recipe!

Better than I expected the only thing I didn’t do was mash the apple after stewing and used a cinnamon stick as a whole not grounded as suggested.
