This is a favorite on crisp fall mornings. We like chunky applesauce served warm.

I really like that you added instructions for the sugar and the honey. I have never tried apples and honey in any combination that I can think of, so the sugar gives me a way to still make this applesauce without the honey if I decide I do not like the combination.
