How to Make Amazingly Simple Chai Applesauce – Metro Chai If you've only had applesauce from a jar than homemade applesauce will be quite a revelation to you. The texture is much different, not as starchy, and it can be quite a bit tangier if you prefer. You can also pick your own apples which leads to lots of applesauce (as we tend to over pick). This particular applesauce recipe is made with metro chai infused from a simple tea bag. You won't believe how simple it is.
