Easy Baked Applesauce

For best results, choose apples that break down easily when cooked, such as Gala, Pink Lady, and Braeburn. The sauce is delicious paired with roast turkey or pork, and you can prepare it up to three days ahead. Serve it warm, at room temperature, or chilled to suit your preference.
