I do not remove the apple skins. They add great nutrients, flavor and fiber. Use your favorite apple variety for homemade applesauce. We love Pink Lady, Granny Smith, Gala and Honey Crisp apples. A combo is great too. Add your favorite natural sweetener to taste of needed. This will depend on the overall sweetness of your fruit.
