  2. Hi Diana,

  3. This is not sugar-free. It is a recipe for No-Sugar Added Apple Sauce, but Apples have quite a bit of sugar in them already, so this may be misleading to a diabetic who must watch sugar intake.

    1. Thanks Drew. We will be more specific. It should read no sugar or white sugar added. Most whole foods have some simple sugars in them. Diabetics must take this into account.

  4. this is a great recipe. i love making my own apple sauce.

    randy — i agree with you about whole foods having sugar in them.

    what are sultanas?????


  5. Hi Annie, happy that you love making your own apples sauce too.
    Sultanas are a type of raisin; guess I need to say that in my recipes since you are the second one to ask me that here this week. Thank you!

  6. Well over a year old, and article is still titled ‘sugar free’… regardless of Randy Fritz’ reply.
    Any raisins raise the sugar content significantly… why should apple sauce have raisins (sultanas) added… are apples not sweet enough by themselves?. I read where ‘Raisins range from about 67% to 72% sugars by weight, most of which is fructose and glucose’.
    Trying not to nitpick, but… seems -not- like good sugar management.
    It really -is- a service to be verbally specific … and getting people into the right frame of mind. “No sugar added” is better… although… the sultanas are pretty full of sugar, but natural… still I’d have conflict with ‘no sugar added’ and adding ‘1/2 cup sultanas’. I’ve seen other homemade applesauce recipes with a little bit of lemon rather than raisins.

  7. Anon, I agree sultanas are a sweetener. All fruits and vegetables except for green leafy vegetables have sugar in them so it is not possible to avoid natural sugar for a healthy sustainable diet.
    There is no real sugar added here and if you look at what most apple sauce recipes include you will find white and or brown sugar added. That being the case I am creating recipes that take one from that to a healthier recipe. You do not need to add the sultanas if that extra sweeteness is not what you need to enjoy it. I often just make the apple sauce with just apples and that is good enough for me but I have found some people find it not sweet enough.

  8. You have GOT to read the book Eating on the Wild Side by Jo Robinson!!! And just go ahead and get the kindle and hardback version! You will never call apples a power food again. Apples have been bred to be sweet since the Egyptians. That means that there have been thousands of years of breeding out nutrients in place of more sweetness. Apples are just a fructose delivery system with a bit of fiber. Even our crab apples were bred to be sweeter and less nutritious! There is no apple on the planet that is as nutritious as “they” claim. Don’t believe the hype!!; Advocate for the Avocado! In the book you will learn that the real powerhouses are avocado asparagus and coming in at number one??? Artichokes! Canned in water or fresh! For fruit don’t waste your money and insulin on anything but WILD blue berries and black berries are always wild! And to get the most nutrients with blueberries?? Flash frozen and defrost in the MICROWAVE!! I know shocking right? Well this is my PSA on debunking the apple myth!! May you be healthy wealthy and wise! Muah!!
