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.

I was given a small bottle of Rain’s Choice in a gift basket and I have been hooked ever since. The flavor makes all of my baking so much better! I will never use grocery store vanilla again!
