    Hi Andrea! You can DEFINITELY can this recipe! Use a hot water bath for your jars or run them through the dishwasher. Immediately pour applesauce into jars and screw the lids on tightly. They will pop/seal on their own and you can store them for a few months. You can also freeze the applesauce without having to go through the sealing process. I hope this helps!

    Could you can this recipe as well? Also, could you switch out the brown sugar for another sweetner and have it turn out the same?

      I think a mix of sweet and tart is good but that’s a preference thing. You wouldn’t go wrong with all sweet apples of your choice either! You won’t be sad – they are so yummy!

    This is my 3rd or 4th year making this and it is soooo yummy! I only make it in the fall; it just seems that is when I should 🙂 At the farmers’ market stand the lady recommended using Cortland apples so that is what I have always used. I have tried coconut sugar as well as the brown sugar and I liked it equally well. I freeze mine in individual portions and it’s still yummy in the middle of January!
