Applesauce

Just found a jar of applesauce that got shoved to the back of the pantry. I didn't mark the lid *forehead slap* so I am not sure how old it is. Its at least 2 possibly 3 years old. It was done in a hot water bath, not a pressure canner. The seal still looks (and feels) intact. I'm leery though. Thoughts?

If the seal is still OK and you don't see anything wrong with it visually then (if it were me) I would think it is OK.

I found some apple butter once that was about 5 yrs old, but it had been in a cool, dark place (my basement), popped loudly when I broke the seal, and had no mold or anything, so I ate it. It was good...I love apple anything. You should try applesauce on graham crackers!
