But be sure they know this:
Makes Your Kitchen Smell Like Heaven
Sure, this applesauce is mind-blowingly good.
But it will also make your house smell like you checked in to the North Pole. Apples, cinnamon, and warm saucy goodness.
This applesauce is so amazingly great.
And did I mention it’s free of that stuff in nearly all pre-packaged applesauces? Yup.

Useful tips for Homemade Applesauce
Be prepared for your house to smell like heaven.
Use honey crisp apples, if possible. They're the best for applesauce.
And, don't laugh at the naked apples. Just peel 'em and move on.
Slice and core. The apple slicer is still, pound for pound, a top five kitchen tool.
I grew up with the prepackaged, perfectly consistent applesauce. So 30 seconds on variable speed 5 in my Vitamix did the trick.
Or blend a little less and serve it chunky.
Oh yeah: And here's it as a side dish with latkes!
