This is my Mother’s recipe for applesauce. She made it every fall around apple picking time.
This recipes keeps getting lost, so I wanted to add it to the blog before I couldn’t find it again. It is on a small piece of paper. It’s December now. I will make this next fall and update with a photo and how much this makes. She used to keep it a slightly chunky when she mashed it.
