Every fall season, I make a big batch of applesauce for my family. Everyone LOVES it and I love that it is much cheaper than buying applesauce from the store. I can make a big batch of this for about three or four dollars as compared to the same amount of money for a small jar of applesauce at the grocery store. Be sure to make this recipe with your kids, it is easy and fun!
