    Wow, a big thanks to your grandmother for this sensible recipe! It’s true, even overly ripe fruits can still be delicious if made the right way! I like how you set up a bowl for all the scraps to put in the compost! That’s what we do at my house, and that way we really don’t waste anything! Your girls are so cute with the preparation, and very helpful as seen by them even peeling the apples! Seems like a perfect kid-friendly recipe! You did such a great job with this, the end result looks very much like real applesauce but even better as it has no additional preservatives or sweeteners! Thanks for sharing the tip about fruit size! I’ll have to remember this recipe for those days when we end up with ripe fruit! Thank you and your grandmother!

    This looks so easy! My almost 4 year old loves applesauce too. Can’t wait to try it with him.

    My son learned to make applesauce sweetened with honey by himself when he was 7 and entered it in the county 4-H food show. He liked it so much, he made it for snacks and for meals for our family after that.

    Along the “Waste not, want not” line: My grandmother had an old apple tree and my mother would peel and slice the apples and dry them for later. The peels were not wasted, though. She would simmer the peels in water to make juice for delicious apple jelly. The apples were, of course, unsprayed and unwaxed.
