i'm about to make some apple sauce, I'd like to spice it up a bit. different varieties, any ideas? I have black berries and raspberries in the freezer and a little bit of strawberries, I even have cantalope lol of course I'll want to make cinnamon apple sauce. what varieties have you made? would love some recipes.

I also have tons of pears, need some new ideas, have canned pears, made pear honey, cinnamon pears, red hot candied pears. pear butter, guess that about wraps up the pears ha? lol I may not do pears this year, not sure yet.

My personal favorite applesauce that I've made was from crab apples... a pretty pink color and a tart-sweet taste. (I always cut down on the sugar in most recipes.)

I posted some pear ideas on another thread in this forum.

I haven't seen any for sale since the batch I made, so I guess I'll have to plant a couple or 3...

My mother was partial to granny smith for applesauce, but I've used every kind of apple available. My grandmother made crab apple jelly every year, and it was amazing!

I use granny smith and galas for canning applesauce. I have found the tart apples usually work best. I made a run of cinnamon applesauce for ny neice and she loved it.
