I started making this applesauce when I was sick, seeking comfort foods reminiscent of childhood. But I found that this recipe is so incredibly yummy that I started to make a batch once a week! It is great on the side of breakfast, as a snack, or even as a dessert. The best part is that it is WAY better than packaged applesauce because of the addition of dates and cinnamon AND it is free of all the crap preservatives you would find in Mott's. (Sorry Mott's!)
