I'm amazed at how superior your vanilla is!

I opened the bottle of your vanilla extract last weekend to bake some cookies and the difference in taste is extraordinary." – Judy

Vanilla-Fragranced Applesauce



Vanilla-Fragranced Applesauce



21/2 pounds apples (8-9), peeled, cored, and cut into chunks

apple juice or cider to cover apples

sugar or honey to taste

1/2 teaspoon Rain’s Choice pure Vanilla Extract (or more to taste)

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon allspice


Place apples in a saucepan and partly cover with juice. Simmer just until tender, adding more juice if necessary.

When cool, run through food processor or blender, or mash with a fork until a sauce is formed.

Add sugar or honey if needed (sometimes the juice will make the sauce sweet enough), and add vanilla extract and spices. Serve warm or cold.


Look Delicious?
