Quick applesauce canning help please

Can I can applesauce that has no lemon juice in it? It's a homegrown heirloomish apple if that matters, and I didn't add anything to the sauce. It's just apples. Thank you!

I sprinkled my apples w lemon juice so they wouldn't brown when i was peeling them- but the recipie I used from the ball canning book didn't call for it. Just called for apples and water

Looks like you can http://nchfp.uga.edu/how/can_02/applesauce.html
I would have thought that the acid would help preserve it, but I tend towards being a big scaredy cat.

I usually do but I've forgotten in the past and had that "oh crap" moment when they were in the canner. They came out just fine and lasted just as long as the other jars!

Yes, you sure can. I do mine w/nothing but apples & the water I use when I'm cooking them down.

I've been making applesauce for 15 years, my mom has been making it for 40 years. Neither of us ever uses lemon juice. Apples, plus enough water to keep it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
