The Pioneer Woman's recipe
Adapted from thepioneerwoman.com
Combine all ingredients in a large pot and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 25 minutes. Carefully puree in a food processor or blender (don't fill too full; split into two portions if needed) until smooth. Store in the fridge and serve by itself, over pork chops, over ice cream, over pancakes...or any place where applesauce is needed!
