This is a nice applesauce to enjoy any time, but especially with latkes during Hanukkah. You don't need to get your blender dirty; you just need a potato masher and a little elbow grease. The use of a sugar substitute makes the applesauce sweeter with less sugar added.

- 3 pounds (1300 g / about 8 cups) peeled, cored, and chopped apples
