    I followed this recipe exactly as instructed and found it very easy to follow. The smell of the apples when they got warm and soft was lovely and filled the room. After adding the butter and mixing it in, I sprinkled some caster sugar over the top and stirred. So incredibly easy and cheap to make. The result was a very delicious apple sauce that I shall be repeating over the Christmas period. Thank you,!  -  22 Dec 2009

    Very easy and yummy. Dunno why, but would not have thought to put butter in, but it's genius!  -  09 Nov 2011
