My Grandma was famous for her recipes using fruit, whether it be a sauce, salad, or pie. She and Grandpa grew their own fruits including rhubarb which grew like a forest in the warm Michigan summers.

Her apple sauce is the best around...and chunky, not slimy!

Eating a bite of this will take you back to the glories of the 1940's.
