  1. I'm entering the contest…..This is one of my favorite recipes because it is simple and healthy. It allows me to control what I feed to my family and be free of preservatives and allergens. I have a 2 year old daughter and a husband that has celiacs and is allergic to peanuts and shellfish, so knowing what is in the food I feed my family is very important!

  2. Awesome recipe! It reminds me of the applesauce my mom made & canned when I was younger. I left the skins on & had to use a hand blender a bit to break them down, but it gave the sauce a great color. My family loves it as well.
    Thank you for the great website!
