Personal Notes:
Same technique is used for apple sauce but once apples are soft and consistency you want, you put in jars etc. Can also do apple sauce on stove 7-10 apples, add about 1 c water, 1/2 tsp salt and cook on med high to boil. Stir and cover and simmer only about 20-30 minutes. Add spices you like. Add sugar or brown sugar to your taste. Can or freeze.
