One-ingredient Applesauce

Okay, this one is must have for any household. This one-ingredient applesauce is a great snack, breakfast, and baking ingredient. You have got to know how to make it!

Unfortunately store-bought applesauce is quite expensive. I mean, when the one ingredient required, why go and buy it? Homemade is healthier, tastier, and cheaper.

I mean, can you even tell the difference? The taste might be slightly different, but when you are given the choice to control what is truly going in your food and the sugar content, why not take the chance!?

Okay, enough blabbering right? I make a lot of recipes that use applesauce.
